TBR… But not really.

So, I was looking through my To Be Read list on Goodreads and realized I had a lost of books that I’d begun, put down, and never looked at it again.

This is my list:

  • The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  • The Prince by Nicolo Macchiavelli
  • Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
  • Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer
  • Damned by Chuck Palahniuk
  • Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
  • The Book of Tea by Kakuzo Okakura

At the time of purchase, or when I started reading, I’m pretty sure I was determined to have these books under my proverbial belt, but I usually found them too hard to get through – like I was slogging through mud.

I’ll get back to you darlings some day! … Probably not.

Found on Carabosse’s blog:

Do you bring the book(s) you’re reading with you when you go out? How? Physically, or in an e-reader of some kind? Have your habits in this regard changed?

In the past it was always the tangible, touchable, smellable book to hold and cuddle with.

Now, with the idea of recycling, deforestation, space-maximising and money-saving, I’ve had to resort to an eReader. In the long run, I know it’ll pay off. I read off three devices: my Kindle, my iPhone and my iPad, in this order. I only just got the Kindle recently, and I’m so in love with it!

So many books, not enough time to read (or review!)

So apparently I’m 11% behind! I’m so close, I can taste it.

Where Am I?
