Booking Through Thursday #35 - Unread

Give me the list or take a picture of all the books you have stacked on your bedside table, hidden under the bed or standing in your shelf – the books you have not read, but keep meaning to. The books that begin to weigh on your mind. The books that make you cover your ears in conversation and say, ‘No! Don’t give me another book to read! I can’t finish the ones I have!'

Oh boy. I'm doing this all out so get ready.
In no particular order, these are the books sitting on my "still to be read" shelf.

  1. Oh dear. You have your work cut out for you. On the plus side, it's summer! :P Good luck with all them. Maybe if you try just reading them one by one, the pile will soon diminish bit by bit? I mean, think positive. :)

  2. Holy, I think I should count mine to see.

  3. Read 'Heaven' soon, if you can. It's my favourite of all the Virginia Andrews books.

  4. If it makes you feel any better, I have even more books than that I still need to read (about 65ish last I counted.) T__T Good luck to you working on that pile you got going.

  5. My list is so long it would take me all day to type it up!

  6. I totally wish I could claim to have written something as brilliant as Octavian Nothing, but I think you mean M.T. Anderson. :D

    Great list!


Pour your heart out. :)
