'tsundoku' - the Japanese word for buying books & not reading them, leaving them to pile up. Who else is guilty of this?

"To live every day as if it has been stolen from death, that is how I would like to live. To feel the joy of life… To separate oneself from the burden, the angst, the anguish that we all encounter every day. To say I am alive, I am wonderful, I am. I am. That is something to aspire to."
