Like many readers I know, my list of books to read is growing too fast. Really, having a ton of stuff to read is great, it’s just that finding the time to read all of it is hard. Take my current stack for example:
This is just my immediate pile. The books I intend to finish first. And these are just the ones I already have. I have others that I haven’t even picked up yet. You may notice that none of the ones from my earlier list are pictured… that’s because I haven’t got them yet (except for Another, by Yukito Ayatsuji, which I own the digital version of). So if we add those to the books pictured above, we’re up to 14. And this doesn’t include a few others on my list. I also have some others that I need to catch up on by two of my favorite authors, Stephen King and Dean Koontz.
So what to do about all this (besides just reading them all)? Well, today I did the only sensible thing: added another one to the stack!
I really should finish my other books before adding more, but the cover art for snotgirl caught my eye. A closer look revealed the name Bryan Lee O’Malley, and I was sold. Bryan is the creator of one of my favorite graphic novels, Scott Pilgrim, which also happens to be one of my favorite movies ever. I’ve read mixed reviews on snotgirl on Goodreads, but considering how much I adore his previous work, I’m super excited to read this!
So those make up the largest part of my to read list, but I do have more that deserve mention. I’ll save that for a future blog entry/list.
I know many of you have even larger piles of books to read than me. Let me know which they are!
