The looming list

A couple months ago, I joined a site called Goodreads. It tracks what you read and what you’d like to read. You can create reviews, read others’ reviews, and discuss with like-minded readers.

You can also clearly see how many books you’ve started, but haven’t finished.

Oh my.

This is my list of unfinished books:

Something Fierce, by Carmen Aguirre
Eating Dirt, by Charlotte Gill
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, by Ransom Riggs
Millicent Min, Girl Genius, by Lisa Yee
Childhood Under Siege, by Joel Bakan
The Winter Vault, by Anne Michaels
From the Land of Green Ghosts, by Pascal Khoo Thwe

This does not include books I’m planning to read. No, this is just the books I’ve started. And even for me, this is a bit ridiculous.

Excuse me, I have to go find a comfortable chair and a cup of tea…
