Oh, books. How do they just continue to add up? I mean, they're gifted, I buy them to complete collections, they somehow just keep showing up in my house and on my bookshelves. I often get rid of duplicate copies, of books I didn't enjoy or never actually plan to read, and this is my most recent collection of what I've got on my shelves waiting to be read. This list includes my physical books, including unread Book of the Month picks, but all my unread ebooks (mostly egalleys from NetGalley) aren't included. Also not included is my Stephen King books, but you can find a list of all of those here

So that's it. One of the longest lists you'll ever read (okay, maybe not, but it feels like it). I'll plan to keep this updated as I start reading these. You'll be able to check the tracker at the top for my progress.

Do you have a list of unread books that line your shelves? Share with me. I'd love to cheer you on!
