Last September I committed to reading books I already own in the Clear-off-Your-Shelves Challenge. I didn’t include re-reads, which would have padded my list in a lovely way. Recent purchases also didn’t make the cut. All books had to have been sitting on my shelf for at least six months to be considered challenge material.
Out of all the books I’ve read this last year, guess how many qualified?
Here they are:
Zel – Donna Jo Napoli
Cordelia Underwood – Van Reid
Bury Me Standing: The Gypsies and Their Journey – Isabel Fonseca
The Sign of the Beaver – Elizabeth George Speare
The Shadow of the Wind – Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Sad, isn’t it? Though the official challenge is long over (it actually ended sometime last fall), I solemnly swear I will continue reading through the books I already own.
Are you with me? I’d love to hear what books are languishing on your shelves.
