tsundoku (n) Japanese, buying books and not reading them; letting books pile up unread on selves or floors or nightstands.
I seem to have stumbled on the word for my particular psychosis. In my defense I mostly intend on reading/finishing them… one day… when I’m big. Unfortunately when characters were drawn up I took Carnal prowess instead of the Mindfulness perk. Of course now that my virility is seeping away (both with age and the frightening realization that sex may equal more children) I’m thinking maybe I chose incorrectly.
I am still hopeful that I may be able to absorb the knowledge of eons past through osmosis. I’ll let you know how it goes.
