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. And in order to keep track I have made a list (I love lists!).

So in all it’s alphabetized by author’s last name glory, here is my To Be Read pile conveniently split into Fantasy and non-Fantasy! I will get through them all … at some stage … I promise!

Hopefully there will be some that interest fellow bibliophiles ….
