Okay I really don't care why people can't get that a Mt TBR of less than 200 books is a cause for panic. What would happen if the roads were all blocked for some reason! There's always a chance you could get snowed in, even in Australia, and what would you do if you had 2 weeks with insufficient books to read. But I also like a classy excuse.
I need to buy this book because:
- I'm worried about the general downturn in publishing.
- If I stop buying them, they might stop printing them.
- I'm doing a scientific study on the amount of bound paper sheets that can fit into a single abode before it sinks into the earth
- I've heard that there are subliminal messages in later day crime fiction, causing people to crave more chocolate and I'm on the task force trying to identify the culprits.
Come on, this is a public service everyone, add to our welter of excuses.
