WELCOME TO DEATH BY TSUNDOKU – COLLECTION OF BOOK REVIEWS TO HELP YOU SORT THROUGH YOUR GIGANTIC TBR PILE FOR THE GOOD ONES
About Death by Tsundoku
Tsundoku (n.) [tsUn-dO-kU]: the act of leaving a book unread after buying it, typically piled up together with such other unread books on shelves, floors, or nightstands.
Books are an addiction. Not just the written word, but physical books. Heck, electronic books, too!
After years of piling up books, Jackie B. realized it’s just hard to figure out the right book to read. After participating in book clubs, forums, chat groups, and more she realized that sometimes you just want someone else to do the heavy lifting for you.
Death by Tsundoku will help you identify the next book you should pick up and read. No longer do you need to dig through your pile and make impulse decisions based on covers. Now you can parse through a collection of well-written reviews to find the perfect next book to read.
Death by Tsundoku Goals:
- Inspire you to make the most of your reading time
- Encourage you to make a dent in your To Be Read (TBR) List
- Engage in discussion on books, reading, and life as a reader
- Help you identify the next book you want to read
Biography of a Blogger
Passionate bibliophile, Jackie B. is an extroverted interpersonal learner who can’t stop talking about books. Unable to find enough outlets for her literary passion, she turned to blogging. By day, Jackie B. works as a corporate adult educator and community musician. By night, she can be found with her “blanket and juice” [i.e. heated blanket and a bottle of wine] curled up in some corner of the house with a good book… or eight.
