The Sunday Salon [11.11.12]

The Sunday

I now have two books in the Finished Pile!

Finished Pile

It may only be two books out of hundreds on my shelves, but it’s still two books. The reading is going slow, but I am actually really enjoying this Read My Own Books project so far. The absence of any pressure to read anything else – whether review books or library books – is refreshing. It feels a lot like my pre-blogging days.

I am currently reading The Book Thief, which has been on my own bookshelf for YEARS. And although it’s been high on my TBR for just as long, I’ve never managed to squeeze it in the lineup. This is the great part about this project.

What book has been lingering on your bookshelf the longest?

    2 books are better than none and relaxing a bit with our reading is such a great thing! Since I’ve started blogging I feel a lot more pressure to read THIS and read THAT and do it NOW. So..enjoy!

    I hope you’re loving The Book Thief, great read.

    The Book Thief is one of my all-time favorite books. It is simply precious and clever and heartbreaking. And I love challenges like this. In fact, I just signed up for CB James’ TBR Double Dog Dare that starts on Jan 1 where you read all your own stuff for three months. It is good for the soul!
