The Growing "To Be Read" Pile

My book club had its annual holiday dinner tonight. It was a lot of fun - great food, good conversation and a fun book swap. I ended up with a new book through the swap, and a friend let me borrow another book that I've been wanting to read. So my "To Be Read" pile has grown much larger. I need to start managing it better - and getting through it! Some of these books have been in my drawer for months! So, here's what's in my TBR pile at the moment:
  1. The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larsson
  2. The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans
  3. The Christmas Train by David Baldacci
  4. Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore
  5. Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris
  6. The Post-War Dream by Mitch Cullin
  7. Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn
  8. The Long Wait for Tomorrow by Joaquin Dorfman
  9. Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin
  10. Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult
  11. Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See
  12. A Million Little Pieces by James Frey
  13. Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
  14. All Over But the Shoutin' by Rick Bragg

The three holiday books on this list need to be read by the end of January 2010 to complete the Winter Holidays Reading Challenge #2. They will also, in addition to the rest of the books on this list, be applied to the Countdown 2010 Challenge (except for the ones that were published before 2001). The only book on the list that might be applied to the 2010 Support Your Local Library Reading Challenge is Half the Sky, which I'm hoping to borrow from the library in January so I can read it for the February meeting of my book club.

  1. I have a few of those books on my TBR list too. I love Jodi Picoult, and have heard wonderful things about 19 Minutes. I have it, but have not gotten around to reading it just yet. Happy reading to you!
