To Be Read or Not To Be Read, That Is the Question

Posted on January 14, 2011


I happened to need a pile of books for a project I was working on and instead of heading to the bookshelf (the furthest place away), I headed to my nightstand, the To Be Read stack.

And I realized, it wasn’t a stack. It was the Eastgate Library.  Some of them have been started, some haven’t been touched since they came into my possession.

So, if you have read any of these, please let me know if I should keep it on the list.  Because I already have My Own Danged Reading Challenge to do this year and will probably find another or three to do, I would like to whittle down my TBR list.  So please help me!

Here they are:
