List #15 - 2015 "To Be Read" Pile Challenge by RBR

I've been away for a few weeks.  First full day back to normalcy, and first blog in 2015.  Surprise - it's about books!

If you're not a reader, thanks for stopping by...but we'll chat soon.  If you are a reader, then you'll know what I'm talking about.  You know those books on your shelf that have been there a while?  Or on your e-reader?  Or they are tucked away in your mind that you keep meaning to read them but get distracted by other books, or projects, or life?  Well, I stumbled upon a challenge to help get to those books.  Check out the specifics here.  Currently, I have 389 books on my goodreads "to-read" list.  I may have a problem.

  1. Wow! I though I was bad with about half that much on my TBR list! lol.

    Goodluck! i've only read Pride and Prejudice out of those and it's my fav :)

  2. I just finished The Kitchen House and freaking LOVED it. and of course P&P is my fave!

  3. Between Shades of Gray and I Am The Messenger are on my TBR as well. Didn't pick them for the challenge, but I know they're supposed to be good.

    I read Middlesex a while ago. So powerful. It definitely made me uncomfortable at some points, but I think that kind of IS the point.


I love comments, and I enjoy our interactions. I respond via email, but if you're a "no reply blogger", I can't. Don't think I'm ignoring you!
