Hi. Kettle! Nice to meet ya. My name is Pot.
I only start reading a book if I feel the urge for that particular one, just after I finish the previous one. I have a few of those twenty-five year old, unread books myself, that never grabbed me in one of those small windows in time. I just can't plan on reading any particular book ahead of time, so it's good to have lots of them in the TBR pile.
