Lost or Forgotten Books {2}: April



We all have them.
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 at least one of these books each month.


If you recall, March’s selection was Out of the Blue by Isabel Wolff, as picked by the Fiance.  I managed to finish that book before the end of March, just barely.  More explanation to come in the review next week.  [Edit:  This review can be found here.]

This month I decided that I was going to pick, because the Fiance’s pick for March really had me digging my heels in for most of the month.  I haven’t had much mystery/suspense in my life for a while, so I decided on Rosebush by Michele Jaffe.




I hereby challenge YOU to pick a lost or forgotten book from your shelves and set out to read it this month.

Write a post about it and link back, or at least leave a comment telling me what book you chose, and how you chose it!!

    I love this idea! I think I’ll pick up The Goose Girl since I’ve had that book for way too long and still haven’t read it. Good luck with your goal!

    This is a great idea because I always feel guilty about those forgotten books lying around! I think I’ll make my month goal Slaughterhouse Five because I’ve been meaning to read it for so long and its short, so totally doable!


I'd love to know what you think!
