tsundoku (tsun-DOH-ku) - n., the piling up of unread books.

Borrowed late last year from Japanese, from tsumu, to pile up + doku, to read/reading (using an alternate character reading), with a pun on tsundeoku, to leave piled up. Usage in English is rapidly evolving, but it seems to get used as a verb of the action as well as the noun of the act.


Tsundoku is problem endemic in the Stone households.
