A few weeks ago, while browsing on Facebook, I discovered a new word:
This totally applies to me since I have several shelves (and piles on my nightstand) of books I want to read (mostly manga, but also several novels and a few non-fiction). I also have a (smaller) pile of dvds waiting to be watched… And yet I had swore to read more this year. I am getting lazy.

Another great occasion to enrich my vocabulary. Tsundoku (積ん読 or つんどく) is a word play on tsunde oku (積んでおく, “to leave piled up”) combining the kanji for tsumu (積む, “to pile up”) and doku (読, “to read”).
