Stepping up my reading

I read two books for the RIP challenge and then I slacked off. Not good. And let's just not talk about the A-Z challenge. So yesterday I actually wrote down part of what I wanted to read this month and there were three "musts" on it.

  • Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (does anyone else have trouble remember which Bronte sister wrote what?)  - it's a double whammy that will knock it off both my A-Z and my RIP list.

  • Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen - same as above, it's on both lists.

  • X in Flight by Karen Rivers - I found an X book for the A-Z challenge that isn't X stands for unknown! It's actually the first book in a Canadian YA series.

  • Our Hidden Lives ed. by Simon Garfield - A-Z book that I've been picking at for oh, about a year. It's easy to read in short bits. I just need to remember to do so.

  • Heat by George Monbiot - A-Z challenge book that I'd like to start this month but that means I need to finish the first three on this list first.

  • Enlightenment for Idiots by Anne Cushman - I received a review copy of this and it needs to move up the pile.

Plus all my library books which are piling up and staring at me from their shelf. Plus I ordered books from The Book Depository. Plus I have a few other review copies around. AND they are about to announce the GG list soon. And I really need to make time to read Through Black Spruce.

I simply have too many books that I have/need/want to read. How do you balance it?
