I’m back from my vacation and I’m thinking about books again. (Big surprise, eh?) So, here are some excerpts from Mount Readmore (a.k.a. my to be read pile.) What books do you have in your stack?
1. The Game by Laurie R. King – I’ve enjoyed the ones in the series before this one, but I just haven’t continued…yet.
2. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen – I still haven’t read any Austen, but this is the one I’ve had recommended to me.
3. Wicked: Witch by Debbie Viguié and Nancy Holder – Debbie is a friend, and I’ve read almost all of her other stuff. And now that this series has been optioned by Dreamworks…I should really get my act together.
4. Eragon by Christopher Paolini – Okay. I admit it. I’ve started this one a couple of times…but I haven’t finished it. *hangs head in shame* I have skimmed it a few times though.
5. The Summer King by O. R. Melling – I loved book one, and I even own this one. I need more time to read.
6. Aunt Dimity and the Next of Kin by Nancy Atherton – I stalled out on Snowbound, and I need to just move on to this one. I love the Aunt Dimity books.
7. Shapeshifter: The Demo Tapes 2 by Susan Helene Gottfried – I just need to remember to stick this book in my bag. Someday my memory might actually be working in the morning.
8. The Jewish Book of Why by Alfred J. Kolatch – Okay. I just went and got this off of the shelf again. Let’s see if I can read it before it’s due this time.
9. Weird California by Greg Bishop – I actually have this one checked out and I’ve read the first couple of chapters. Will I finish it before it’s due this time?
10. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne – I actually tried to listen to this one in my car. That didn’t work so well…
11. Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs – This is another one of those books of which I’ve only read the first couple of chapters. Fail.
12. The Celts: A Very Short Introduction by Barry Cunliffe – This is literally only one book in a stack of books on the same topic that I need to read. (You see, I can’t afford another Degree right now, so my plan is to just read all of the books.)
13. Sons of the Profits, or, There’s No Business Like Grow Business: The Seattle Story, 1851-1901 by William C. Speidel – I went on the underground tour in Seattle and the datapoints all come from this book! It taunts me from my shelf. I need to get to this one.
