The “to read” Pile

Here’s a photo of the “to read” pile. It’s actually over 2 months old and some of that stuff has been cleared out with new stuff added. But I’m too lazy to bring all the stuff from the various piles around the bed, nightstand and other reading supply annexes and stack them in one handy place for a new photo. (Is there some funky plural to annex? I’m too tired to look right now.) But aren’t the Han Shot First bookends awesome?

Sorry if the titles are blurry. I think the stack on the upper left is the magazine pile which is greatly reduced since that time. I’m going to read like a fiend over xmas vacation.

On Friday I had to run just a couple of routine errands but about fifteen minutes in I was confident that I never have to hear “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire” ever again. Why is that song so annoying?

I’ve had another busy weekend. I’m so tired I can hardly see straight. I still haven’t cleaned off my desk. There’s a stack of “you have to do this” notes which I’m planning to ignore.

    First, I love the Han Shot First bookends. Second, I have that same Shakespeare book. Actually two of them for some reason. Third, your books look so orderly and sparse compared to every place I have books.

    I think we have the same two random years of Best Short Stories. Also, I tried to read Bel Canto in HS. Everyone I know who has read it loved it. I couldn't get through it. I should try again. I've read other of her books and liked them.

    And I too ignore my "i have to do this" notes. Even as I write them on electronic post-its, I know it will never happen.

    kmari – I always fight the [quite] intense urge to post my word verification. Somehow those word verifications strike me as random art, or *should* be put in some sort of random art. It will be called "WUVA," which, of course, alludes to "word verification art" abbreviated. Are you in? 😀

    And yes, Pamela, those bookends are da bomb! (Is that phrase still hip?)

    Yes, those bookends!

    Bel Canto is one of my favorite books.

    I couldn't get through that Francine Prose one. It made me feel like I wasn't intellectual enough to be reading it.
