I have an extremely bad habit of coming up with something that, to me, sounds like a GREAT IDEA, ordering a ton of books on it, forgetting about it* over the course of the next day/week, and then getting an email notifying me to come and pick up books that I cannot remember why I wanted to read.
So I pick them up anyway and add them to my pile. Will I ever get through this pile? Will I ever remember why I wanted to read these books in the first place?
* Sometimes I forget about it because it only seemed like a good idea at the time, and after some thought it’s actually not so great. But the books still seem interesting and I’m always hopeful that they will lead to a better idea.. if I ever get around to picking them up.
