I have no willpower

At least not when it comes to challenges...especially when it's a challenge that just makes sense. Like the From the Stacks winter challenge from Overdue Books.

From the original post:
"So for this challenge we would be reading 5 books that we have already purchased, have been meaning to get to, have been sitting on the nightstand and haven't read before. No going out and buying new books. No getting sidetracked by the lure of the holiday bookstore displays."

I need this. I'm feeling the itch to buy new books. I don't need new books. I have plenty of books here that are waiting for me to read them...

So my list...

  1. A Great and Terrible Beauty - Libba Bray

  2. Moral Disorder - Margaret Atwood

  3. Thirteenth Tale - Diane Setterfield

  4. On Becoming Fearless - Arianna Huffington  finished Dec. 30

  5. The Library at Night - Alberto Manguel


  1. Murder at Mussle Cove - Hugh MacDonald

  2. Heat - George Monbiot

  3. The Position - Meg Wolitzer

  4. Fat Girl's Guide to Life - Wendy Shanker
