I really, really, really want to dent the TBR pile this year, so I'm going to do my darndest to choose and fill my challenges using books I already own. Not much progress is made when I choose books that I have to acquire, you know?
On the other hand, remember a few years back when folks were talking about the Set Point Diet, based on the idea that the body has its own idea of its ideal weight? Maybe the TBR pile works the same way. That would explain why it never seems to go down . . .
2011 Seconds Challenge: Easy peasy to fill this one, a challenge that encourages readers to read a second book from an author, whether or not it's a book from a series. It's hosted by Katy of A Few More Pages. Go here for all the details.
There are four levels but I'll be doing the lowest one, Just a Spoonful, which is 3 books.
2. Gilead - Marilynne Robinson
3. David Copperfield - Charles Dickens
