Books - Reading Queue

These are books that I own, but have not read yet. (Yes, usually due to bad planning I do also own books that I don't really ever seriously plan to read; they generally won't appear on this list.)

Recently, I've made a particular effort to hack the reading queue down. It's hard to decide whether to bring a book to England or not if I've never read it. I've been making progress, in that the list of my own books yet unread is about to drop below the 40 mark (down from 60 as of six months ago), but to make matters worse, I now have a vast influx of Mike's books that I intend to read. I've started adding them to the official queue shown below, but I've only scratched the surface.

These are sorted by author, not by the order in which I intend to read them. This is mostly because I have no idea what order I intend to read them in.

Count: 102

Currently Reading:
   "Lions of Al-Rassan" by Guy Gavriel Kay (New)
   "River of Blue Fire" by Tad Williams (Mike's)
   "Jeeves Omnibus I*" by P.G. Wodehouse (New)
