So many books, so little nightstand space...

Recently my friend, Wila, invited me to sign up at Goodreads as a way to keep track of what books I’ve read, list books I need to read, and compare notes and book reviews with friends. I’ve gone back a couple of times, when I get a spare moment, to add to the list of books I’ve read and enjoyed. It’s fun to see what others are reading.

And my friend, Sonya, told me about Bookswim, doing for readers what Netflix did for movie viewers. You can sign up for a monthly fee and get books shipped to you and postage is free. Memberships start at $15 a month. Something to think about if I can ever get through my to-be-read stack that seems to grow.

Right now I need/want to read two books that I’ve been meaning to read for at least a year now: The Dive from Clausen’s Pier and The Memory Keeper’s Daughter.

This led me to think of a fun list to create. Below is a list of fictional titles I’m sure I won’t be reading this year:
