Meme: Booking Through Thursday

Posted 9 July, 2009 by Li in Meme / 1 Comment

“So here today I present to you an Unread Books Challenge. Give me the list or take a picture of all the books you have stacked on your bedside table, hidden under the bed or standing in your shelf – the books you have not read, but keep meaning to. The books that begin to weigh on your mind. The books that make you cover your ears in conversation and say, ‘No! Don’t give me another book to read! I can’t finish the ones I have!’ “

Booking Through Thursday

It’s funny because yesterday after coming back from the bookstore and updating my lists, I compiled a list of books that remain on my TBR. I can say I’m pleased that I’ve managed to dwindle the list down to 12 books, 13 if you include a book that I’ve already read, just not in its original language; still a hefty number but not as bad as a few weeks ago, lol. Here’s the list:

  • Christopher Andrew & Vasili Mitrokhin’s The Mitrokhin Archive II: The KGB and the World (N)
  • David Anthony Durham’s Acacia
  • Greg Keyes’s The Born Queen
  • The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien (N)
  • Douglas Adams’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: A Trilogy of Four
  • Brian Ruckley’s Bloodheir
  • David Rotenberg’s Shanghai
  • Gary R. Ryan’s Blessings in Disguise (N)
  • Elizabeth Gaskall’s Wives and Daughters
  • Ariana Franklin’s City of Shadows
  • Bohumil Hrabal’s I Served the King of England
  • Ted Bell’s Tsar
  • Anna Gavalda’s Ensemble C’est Tout (I read the English translation of this book, Hunting and Gathering but I want to read it in the original language)
