To Be Read

Books! Books! Lots of wonderful books as far as the eye can see and more than the mind can comprehend. So many to choose from, each telling a different and interesting story, some born in the real world from actual events or imagined from the creative heart of a dreamer.

Books truly are nourishment for the soul!

As there are never enough hours in the day to read as many of them as I would like, it means that I have a reasonably robust list of books waiting for my attention in a combination of digital and physical (although mostly digital). And in order to keep track I have made a list (I love lists!).

Now I generally unhaul books that I have read UNLESS I really love them and want to keep them for a future re-read or if they are by a favored author so I don’t normally have a ridiculous amount of books waiting to be read. I would say that it varies between 50 and 60 which I think isn’t too bad.

So without further ado here is my To Be Read pile conveniently split into Fantasy/SciFi, General Fiction and Non-Fiction. I will get through them all … at some stage … I promise!
