To Read

When I picked a book off my 'to read' pile, I was surprised to find I'd owned said book since 2004!!! So wrong. Thus, I've decided to put all the books currently on my shelf into a 'to read' order, bearing in mind that I've done this before and ignored it.

Of course, I put my most recent purchase (Mrs Darcy versus the Aliens) at the head of the queue because I'm tricky like that. Hopefully it won't take seven years to read any books I currently own, there are only forty-five in the pile at the moment and that's not many at all.

I'm trying not to buy any more at the moment (with the exception of Katey's Scripped, oh and Kate's 'Evil Outfitters, Ltd' when it's published, oh and Anthony Rapino's Soundtrack...). I expect to fail.

Oh, and look out for Jon Pinnock who will be appearing here on the 8th. That is, this Thursday. And pictures of my new office are also forthcoming.

Yikes. That cover is freaking me out. Hope the contents match up.

Cate Gardner said...

Me too :D

Oh, don't worry about the lady on the cover. She's a sweetie really.

Well you're better off than I am. I have a couple of hundred books on my little Kindle for PC (as I don't own a Kindle yet) I haven't touched. Not to mention the stack of books on my shelf waiting for attention. I've been such a bad book reader lately.

Although, now I have a new book to add to my wishlist. :)

Great recommendations. Thanks, Cate.

I have books from the late 70s that I haven't read yet including, to my shame, The Gormenghast trilogy. Too many books, too little time.

Cate Gardner said...

I refuse to believe you, Jon

I've cut a decent hole in my 'to read' pile recently, Andrea. Although I ignore all the things lurking on my kindle.

You're welcome, Gef

Now that's really bad, Pete.

:-) Well, it looks like you have a couple months reprieve from purchasing my novel. Last I spoke to the publisher, he said a November release. But given that it has been pushed back once already, I don't know how solid that is.

Oh, and that's the first I mentioned this to anyone. Feel special? ;-)

Cate Gardner said...

Very special, Anthony. And November will be here before you know it. I hope.

I try to put my to be read books in order but then I just end up going where whimsy takes me anyway.

Cate Gardner said...

I fear that will happen here too, Danielle.

Katey said...

Oooh I really really need to buy that, too!

... I keep trying not to. But dammit. I can't manage and I know it >.<
