I just read this interesting post by Anne-Laure Le Cunff: building an anti-library. The idea is that unread books can be as powerful as read books, maybe even more powerful.
The goal of an antilibrary is not to collect books you have read so you can proudly display them on your shelf; instead, it is to curate a highly personal collection of resources around themes you are curious about. Instead of a celebration of everything you know, an antilibrary is an ode to everything you want to explore.
Some great tips in that post:
- while reading something, collect references to things that piques your interest.
- ask other readers of something you read for recommondations. (I see a lot of that on reddit)
