Top Ten Book Related Problems I Have

Top Ten Tuesdays is a weekly feature created at The Broke and The Bookish.

1. Twelve books at once. This has been a problem recently. I've been struggling with finishing books recently (look forward to the February DNF pile... I feel like its going to be huge if I don't get my act together soon).

2. Multiple library books. I have this habit of taking ten or fifteen books at a time, which is all well and good in the summer months when I'm not in classes, but when I'm in the throes of midterms its a bit of a problem.

3. Running out of shelf space. I'm finally getting there. Time to give some books away soon, perhaps?

4. Lending books. I do lend out books from my library (because, if they aren't going to be read, what's the point in having books?), but I still get antsy when people have a book for more than a week or two. It doesn't help that some people keep my books for months... I need to set at three-week limit.

5. Carrying multiple books around. I've been carrying three books around in my school bag, which probably isn't good for my back. Or my attentiveness to those dull lectures (most of my classes are great, but there's one...)

6. Disorganised book shelves. Right now its a bit of a problem, because I haven't sorted out my shelves since last year, and I've acquired a couple of books since then. And I don't want to reorganise them until I get all of my books back.

7. Most book events are in Texas. I am in Canada. You see the problem?

8. The book events that do happen around here have this awkward habit of happening during midterms, exams, or in places completely inaccessible without a car.

That's all I've got off the top of my head.
