I trying the same thing with my book buying- I have about 100 unread books. Also, A bit of constructive criticism, I had a really hard time watching this video because you weren't looking at the camera, so it may be something worth working on.
I remember completely hating reading assignments in high school. It almost ruined reading for me! My favorite book I read in February was The Virgin Suicided by Jeffery Eugenides. It was so unique and interesting.
