In the lexicon of the world of books, there exists Tsundoku.
It's an art and according to a BBC article, the Japanese-term describes a person who owns a lot of unread books.
But when you think about it, even harvesting book titles is like having multiple windows to the world. Each take the reader to a far away reality, idea, place or history depending on the subject. The reader is transported, even if for a brief contemplation.
Our own alumni have a virtual shelf of books, poetry, fiction and nonfiction. When was the last time you perused the collection. With the pandemic, now is a perfect time to pick up a new title -- even if to only read the title.
Click this link for the Alumni Bookshelf. Happy leafing...
