The Books That Get Lost or Forgotten

LOFB

We all have them.

At least, those of us who are avid readers anyway.

You know, the books we buy that end up just sitting on a shelf, unread.

Some of these books are books you just HAD TO HAVE at some point.  Some of them may be books that were given to you.  Others perhaps are books you thought sounded interesting at a mass used book sale, and they helped fill up your “bag of books”.

No matter how you first acquired them, they’ve been sitting on your shelf since, “collecting dust” as we might say.

I too, have lost and/or forgotten books.  Knowing that I may not want to keep some of these books once I read them, and thus can trade them in for store credit at various small business bookstores, I have decided to make it my mission to read one of these books each month.

 

So how did I decide which books I was going to tackle?  Well, I pulled out all of the books that I have owned for more than a year.  Then I turned to Fiance and said, “Pick one.”

He would, of course, pick the largest of them all for me to tackle during my first month doing this.  Perhaps, however, that’s the best way to start – it’ll be all downhill from here, right?

Out of the Blue

I hereby challenge YOU to pick a lost or forgotten book from your shelves and set out to read it this month.  Leave a comment telling me what book you chose, and how you chose it!!

    Remember that time I randomly selected a book for you, and you told me “not that one, that one will be for the beach. Pick another?”

    After I get through the next month of so, I think I am going to start randomly pick a book from my TBR pile. I love the idea of reading a random and forgotten book.

      Definitely! We all have a pile of them, I think it’s worth trying to work through them a bit. I have one (long) shelf designated to books I haven’t read yet, and I sort of promised the fiance I wouldn’t push it much past that. Hence my decision to start this 🙂
