Oh good, there’s a word for it
@notclacke Japanese is a great language for poetry. Stacking roots can give deeper meaning than the word itself
@notclacke no, it's 置く in the sense of doing something in preparation
in English: hoarding
@excecate Nah, "hoarding" has specific connotations of being messy and otherwise unsanitary, whereas this is specific to book purchases and seems to indicate an otherwise normal proclivity
not all hoarders live in filth, but maybe that is the final destination of all?
@excecate Not necessarily. There's a line between eccentricity and an actual problem for one's self and neighbors. Many people live with mountains of books just fine and don't have a problem inviting guests in as well
That's a bigger issue for actual hoarders who are often embarrassed about their condition (of their place and their state of mind)
@cypnk I wonder if the same word could be applied to video games, or if a separate one already exists (looking at you, steam library)
@Tak Oh, I’m sure there’s a word for that too *cough*
(This isn’t mine BTW)
@cypnk oh hey a word for me~
@izaya Oh dear!
@cypnk the bottom could be filled with books, that probably wouldn't be visible from your webcam
@cypnk Good one. 🙂
And here's the link to that Tom Gauld cartoon [ https://www.theguardian.com/books/picture/2020/may/16/tom-gauld-on-rearranging-your-bookshelves-in-lockdown-cartoon ].
Telefonbuch und Sparbuch, das reicht!
*cough* Newspapers ;)
Those won't get into a shelf. They end up in the biodegradable bin or that small room centered with porcelain. (The hamsters still grab all the rolls at the grocery store)
@cypnk Thank you so much, I know that I'm a tsundokuist now, I won't feel ashamed anymore.
