Word of the Day: Tsundoku

I learned an interesting word today: Tsundoku (積ん読). It’s a Japanese word that describes the phenomenon for letting reading materials accumulate without being read. I daresay this word perfectly describes my life. This used to be books. Any book. Fantasy, science fiction, philosophy, textbooks – you name it. I wanted it. Borrowing from Mitch Hedberg – I still do, but I used to too. Recently, however, this has manifested in my life as my inability to control the number of research journal articles I save to my Mendeley list. Please send help.
