I will freely admit that I have not read all the books on my bookshelf in my bedroom. I even have a select few that I have no intention of reading (Project Pope, I'm looking at you. You were purchased for humor and irony). However, the vast majority of my books were purchased with the intention that one day I will read them. They were not purchased to decorate a shelf or to make me look smart. I'm already smart and, honestly, my room could do with a little less clutter.

These are for people who are far too concerned with what other people think of their book collections. Read all about it here.
