I sort of pride myself on not being one of those book bloggers who is always oooohing and aaaaahing over the latest book I bought. I’m cheap. I use the library. I don’t buy books for myself. So how did I end up with all of these?

Those are pictures of all the books on my shelves that I haven’t read yet. Most of them I didn’t buy. They are books I either won or were gifts in swaps. I like swaps. I like buying books for other people.

That doesn’t even count the ebooks on my iPad.

I’m joining this challenge to #ReadMyOwnDamnBooks. I want to get at least partway through this stack in the next year.

I made an Owned TBR list on Goodreads.  There are 33 books on the list.  My challenge is at least try these books in the next year.  Then they need to move on unless they are so amazing that I keep them for rereads.  I was going to say that I needed to read anything else that came in the house but then I remembered about BEA.  I need to open up some book shelf space.  These books need to get moving.

How Many Books Do You Have That You Haven’t Read?
