this previous post, I love books with pretty covers. Sometimes, I decide to read a book based solely on its cover art! I also have a rather bad habit of buying a book because of its cover, but I've been doing very well at resisting lately.
These books are only ten of a steadily growing list of books I want to read. As of this moment, there are 53 on the list! Which is why I have made a rather tough decision:
I decided not to read this month's Book Club Bloggers book of the month. I've been a member since its inception, reading and reviewing every single book (except for one) every month. I also gave myself a goal to read at least 50 of the books on a Best 100 Novels list as part of 24 Things To Do Before I Turn 24. That, combined with the book club, hasn't given me much of a chance to read all the other books I want to read. So it is with a heavy heart that I take this month off and probably next month too. But I promise I won't be gone for long! I love the Book Club Bloggers and I deeply hope that Rachael, the blogger who chose this month's book, isn't offended! My decision was in no way personal!
For those of you interested, this month's book was A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers. You can find the links to all the reviews here. (I do plan on reading the book someday!)
