The Top Ten Books I HAD To Buy...But Are Still Sitting On My Shelf Unread
Some are books about reading and picture books that I thought I wanted to read:
Some are books in a series; I read and loved the others in the series...Why not these?
Some are ridiculously short; I could read these in an hour. Why haven't I?
Six-word memoirs. Six words. And look at the size of Red Pontiac Convertible,
John Gorman's poetry chapbook. It's thirty-two pages. Ridiculous.
Not one, but two copies of East of Eden.
At least this one is understandable. It's 2,000 recipes. Good grief.
Was I really thinking I'd be reading this one cover to cover?
Okay, this is probably the most embarrasing of all:
I buy a book called How to Read a Book and then I don't read it.
It probably has tips on how to control your book obsessions.
If I would ever read it.
Please tell me that you have worse stories.
Share them, if you will.
It will comfort me.
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
