It’s no secret that I read a lot of books. I discover books through many sources, including serendipitous walks through the public library, book stores, or even when organizing my home library.
In order to try to regain control of my lengthy TBR list, I decided to participate again in a reading challenge sponsored by Goodreads. Last year, I challenged myself to 111 books, and I met that goal with ease. This year I decided to create a real challenge, especially since some books I read are much shorter than others. I challenged myself to read 212 books in 2012. It appears that this was a reasonable number, as of this post I need to read just 15 books to reach my goal.
However, I’m stuck. Despite a very long TBR list, more books that I keep meaning to finish than I should admit, and the lure of the library… I’m not sure what these 15 books should be.
Can you recommend a book that you think I need to read?
If you can convince me to finish any of the books on my nightstand or in the to be read bookcase (both pictured below), that would be marvelous. If so, there may be a handmade surprise for you as a thank you (to be sent in January). Many of these books have been on my nightstand for years (and a few are rereads). I dusted just for this photo.
