LINO (Last In, Never Out)

I currently have a LINO stack at home: the stack of books I have bought but not read yet. It is supposed to work like a FIFO queue, where I read the books in the order I buy them. However, it tends to be more like an unordered set where the book that comes out next is rather random depending on the mood of the moment. The only problem is, right now, it all stacks up very quickly because I can't keep away from book shops but nothing comes out of it, to the extent that I had to split the stack in two today for fear of seeing it collapse into... a messy pile.
