Reading Queue

I know a lot of knitters out there have various projects going simultaneously but I just can't bring myself to casting on another project while I'm in the middle of another. I definitely am a monogamous knitter. One thing I can't bring myself to do is to be a monogamous reader. I am constantly starting new books even though I love the one's that I am currently reading. I have good intentions to begin with but I can't resist. Instead of reading another chapter of the book that is on my night stand or purse, I end up logging into my amazon to see what else is out there. In this case, I blog about what I'm reading as opposed to actually using this time to read. So I bring you my reading list. These are books that are on the floor beside my bed, on the nightstand, on my coffee table, in my purse, in the bookcase, books I want to read again or never got the chance to read but wanted to and on my wish list... in no particular order.
