I have about 900 books on my nook (or archived). Probably 1/3 of them are unread as of yet.

My husband says I need to stop reading and talk to him sometime.
Congratulations on recognising that you have a problem. That's the first step.

Note that those 99 ebooks soon add up. And who knows they might be offered for free sometime between now and when you eventually get around to reading them!

IMO the best option is to take a break from buying ebooks when your unread pile gets above a year or two's worth of reading.

Free ebooks don't count, of course, which makes it a bit easier.

Make a pledge today. For myself, I won't buy another ebook in June. It's now been a week since I bought an ebook.
