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.
