On YouTube – Books I own but haven’t read, part 2!

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick note sharing today’s video. I’ve accumulated more books that I’ve never read! I hope you’ll stop by and see 🙂

Digital Shelf Shocker!

I always knew I had a few unread books on my Kindle, but wow! I recently made a tally of my Kindle library and was shocked to discover I had 117 unread books, waiting patiently in the dark virtual world for me to get to them.

Like a lot of people, when I first got my Kindle, I downloaded a lot of free public domain books, many of them classics. It was great! Did I read them? Um, a couple, but not really. Some were ones I’d read in college and wanted to re-read. Some were books I felt I should read. You know how that goes. I had good intentions. I still do.

Then I joined NetGalley and downloaded a bunch of those. NetGalley is still waiting for my reviews and I feel bad about that. I also added books by my blogging friends that I want to read. Then there are eBooks that friends and family have given me. I will read all of these, but how to fit them in?

Three of the books on my Kindle are library books that will disappear soon. I just finished 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World by Elif Shafak and I’m racing to read the other two: The Dutch House by Ann Patchett and Maybe You Should Talk to Someone by Lori Gottlieb.

And don’t talk to me about my real stack of unread books, also waiting. Tick, tick, tick…

What a mish mash! But it’s not a crisis. Everything can wait, right? Do you have any of these books waiting for you too?

How many unread books have you been hoarding on your eReader? Leave a comment and let’s have a confessional!

The many books in my future!

Reading lists only grow. Isn’t that the truth? It’s a good thing I’m a bit of a planner because my list has gotten pretty darn long and it’s time to do something about it! Here’s a look at some of the many books in my near future:

     

The Bone Curse by Carrie Rubin – I’m starting this one today, Carrie Rubin’s newest medical thriller. This one says “Medicine has no cure for evil.” Can’t wait to see what it’s about!  You can check out all of Carrie’s books here.

Hinting at Shadows by Sarah Brentyn – I love Sarah’s short fiction, so this collection will be a treat! Visit Sarah here.

On the Edge of a Raindrop by Sarah Brentyn – Sarah has an endless supply of story ideas and I especially enjoy her flash fiction. Looking forward to her twisty wit.


     

Second Chance Romance by Jill Weatherholt – I’ve already had a peek and I just know I’m going to enjoy Jill’s feel-good romance! Click here for more about Jill.

Second Street Station by Lawrence H. Levy – I’m re-reading this historical mystery about Brooklyn’s first woman detective because my Whodunits book club at work is skyping Larry Levy in for our discussion. Can’t wait!

The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin – there is a lot of buzz about this new book, called “a captivating family saga” by The New York Times Book Review. My book club is reading it in March.


  

The Storyteller Speaks by Annika Perry – Annika recently published her 5-star debut collection of short fiction. I read her blog all the time and you can visit it here.

Watching Glass Shatter by James J. Cudney – Jay was very generous to provide me with a copy of his debut novel. Looking forward to this family drama.


I have a bunch of additional titles waiting patiently on my Kindle. I hope to read these in 2018. Here’s a peek:

I feel good knowing I have a little library stashed on my Kindle. It’s not hoarding if it fits into a slim leather case, right? What about you? Do you have a lot of unread books on your eReader?
