There are four days left of this year.
I still have 10 books on my currently reading shelf.
Believe me, it's not that I don't want to finish all of the books, but I doubt I will. All the books I have bookmarks in are the types of books that take me forever. They'll all probably get good ratings because if there was something I didn't like about them when I first started them, chances are, I won't remember it by the time I get to the end.
And we know how I am about endings. If the ending's good, all is forgiven (or mostly). If it ends wrong, it doesn't matter how good the rest of the book was, it'll get a one-star.
I took a break from the books I had. On Christmas Day, I started a Candice Hern romance (it was calling to me), and then yesterday, the new High Heels Mystery came out, so I read it in a few hours, and then went back to the Candice Hern, and finished it.
But that still leaves me with 10 books on my shelf. 4 on my Kindle, 2 hardbacks, 3 mass market paperbacks, and 1 trade paperback.
2 of them, I want to quit. One of them, I probably shouldn't have started right away. But it was just sitting there, "Jadi, Jadi, read me, read me."
I don't make it a habit to buy authors I haven't read before off Amazon. I usually get those for my Kindle, after I've read excerpts from Amazon and reviews from Goodreads.
This was one of those books by an author I hadn't read before. I'd read an excerpt, but it was cheaper to buy a used hardback in great condition than to buy the Kindle format. So that's what I did.
I've read Chapter 1, and am SO about to shelve it. I don't want to get rid of it, but I don't want to read it at the moment. Who knows though?
I know last year, I posted a favorite book of the year. I honestly don't know what it was this year. I mean, I've read so many...
We'll see, we'll see.
