Today is August 1. Which means for the next month, I’m not going to buy any more new books (EXCEPT for the pre-order I had from months ago & if I go to a book event- because it would be rude to not buy a book at a book signing).
Mostly for August, I’ll be reading books that I WANT to read. Books that have been on the shelf for a time- books that have been in stacks. Books that I have been longing to read- and yet, always found another book more important at the time.
I will still be reading a couple of review books ( need to honor my commitments) but mainly- I’ll be #ctbs- Conquering The Book Stacks.
These are some of the books I’m hoping to read during August:
The Painted Girls ( I did not finish during July 😦
These are just a few of the books I hope to read during August. I may not make it through the list, I may sub other books in. All I know is this: I’m going to work really hard to make a dent in the stacks of my books, to reclaim my stacks- to CONQUER the stacks!
Each week, I’ll post an update on how I’m doing- and if you are on Twitter- follow the hashtag #ctbs to see the group of us chatter on about our books.
Here’s hoping I survive to Sept 1 without buying new books (Barnes and Noble- I’m sorry, I won’t be perusing the bargain book section till Sept 1- please don’t put up any “Missing: Have You Seen this Book-aholic” posters)
