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 want to trade some of these books once I read them, I have decided to make it my mission to read at least one of these books each month.
Well, this is my fourth month of doing this, and it’s been fun so far. I’m SUCH a mood reader, so setting aside one book a month that’s been sitting on my shelves FOREVER has been a good guide for me.
Last month I let YOU ALL decide which book I was going to read. You chose Dragon’s Keep by Janet Lee Carey, and that review will be coming later this week. (Here’s a hint: I really liked it!)
I am still being super indecisive about my reading – the number of books I’m reading at the moment simultaneously is a little crazy. So this month Fiance turned his back to the shelf and then put his hand on something (given how tall he is, I should have known it would be a book on the highest shelf, lol). He originally picked One Second Later, but I feel like that’s a book you have to read on your own terms, and I’m not ready for that yet. So he chose again, and the winner was…
Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt! I picked this book up a while ago at a community book sale. I’ve heard good things about it since then, but it has remained on my shelf, mocking me. Time to find out what it’s like!
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, telling us what book you chose, how you chose it, and why!!
Some women collect shoes, others collect purses. I collect books.
