As you've all read below, I've broken a toe on my left foot; and now I have a week or so to sit around get some serious reading done. So, today, I pulled out my trusty backpack which traveled around the UK with me in 1997 and brought it upstairs with me to pack with the books that I've got by my bed. All of these books have been started, but not finished. These books are my Guilty Pile; the books that haven't been finished but were great when I started them. Have you got a pile such as this? I'm sure you have and just haven't gotten around to finishing any of them.
Well, my broken toe has given me the opportunity to get in and do some serious reading; starting with these books. And here's the list:
'The Dreaming Void' by Peter F Hamilton
'The Troy Game: Hades' Daughter' by Sara Douglass
'11-22-63' by Stephen King
'The Arsonist's Guide to Writers' Homes In New England' by Brock Clarke
'Star-Begotten' by H.G. Wells
'Oryx and Crake' by Margaret Atwood
'Neuromancer' by William Gibson
'Redeeming the Rogue' by Donna MacMeans
'Owls Do Cry' by Janet Frame
So, there you go. My pile of books that have been sitting by my bed waiting for me to finish them. I'm ashamed to have let them stay there for so long and not finish them. I hope to finish them - one by one - soon and let you in on how good they were. Which books do you have that are sitting awaiting for you to finish them with a bookmark a quarter or halfway through them? Have you picked them up and finished them, or are they still waiting for you? Or did you do what I did and almost forget them? Until my next post, happy reading!
