The Neglected Books Page, Or, Death to Productivity

You know what I needed? An entire website dedicated to books I probably haven't heard of yet. Because my non-existent list of books I'd like to read one day wasn't already daunting enough.

But, alas, now I have (yet another) outlet in which to lose myself, while away the hours, and with which I will, naturally, continue to expand the list of books I strive to read in one short lifetime. It even has a great name: The Neglected Books Page.*

I'd consider renaming this page "Death to Productivity," as the title suggests, as between perusing the page itself and finding time to read all of the hidden treasures listed here, I'm not sure I can continue to keep a full-time job or clean the house or feed myself. But that's what Mondays are for, after all - questioning our jobs and pretending to be productive. So enjoy it!

*The concept of the page actually reminds me a bit of the Cemetery of Forgotten Books in Carlos Ruiz Zafon's Shadow of the Wind. Any thoughts?

  5. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My website goes over a lot of the same subjects as
    yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
