I Invite You to Shame Me. Bibliophiles and Bookworms, Come Hither!

If you're a self-professed bibliophile, book nerd, bookworm, or maybe just a hoarder, you certainly can relate to this very annoying and privileged problem:

Bookshelves full of books I've never read. 

I feel both shame and giddiness for this. Shame because goddamn I really need to finally read In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. And giddiness because ALL THE BOOKS YAY.

So, as an experiment in self-prescribed public shaming, I created an Instagram account to try and hold myself accountable to the idea that books should be read. Plus, I am just tired of seeing E.M. Forster or Salman Rushdie stories just sitting there, mocking my sad overwhelmed-as-bibliophile existence. Not anymore, fuckers!

This is where you come in. If you can relate to this silly quandary, please follow my new Instagram account at Instagram.com/bookshelfconfessions and shame me mercilessly until I either cry or pick up one of the books and start reading. I need you. And if you want to commiserate, come play along with me!

I'm posting an unread book from our bookshelves every single day at Instagram.com/bookshelfconfessions.

See you there, book nerds!
