Shogun by James Clavell: I hear it's wonderful. I planned on reading it for a online book group thing years ago. My son even bought it for me for Christmas. I think I've read the first 50 pages 2 or 3 times. So why don't I just read it? I have no idea....
Bleak House by Charles Dickens: I've wanted to read this one for years. Then I finally bought it, and still it sits there unread. I put it on all my challenge lists and still, unread. I just need to read it already!
Oil by Upton Sinclair: Once upon a time, Kookie blogged about books and she raved about this one. So I bought it. But it has yet to be read. I'm a little scared of this one I think. My husband read it and survived, so I probably will too.
The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Graham: A children's classic that I've had forever and just never seem to read. Let's see, what challenge list can this one go on?
Ah, well. And so it goes. On and on. The pile of unread, waiting-for-their-turn books. My companions for life.
