Challenged, part 857

I've decided my next book challenge is going to be finally reading all the books I put on my Goodreads "to-read" list 8,000 years ago. There are 20 books on there, and I'm pretty sure at least one of them I'm unlikely to actually read cover-to-cover (Best American Short Stories 2007, I'm looking at you). But I'm trying! First up: Jonathan Lethem's Gun, with Occasional Music. I bought it after my initial Motherless Brooklyn high, and I haven't picked it up since. Wish me luck, people. I'm pretty sure I'm going to need it.

There are 121 books on my "to read" list. At the rate I'm reading it would take me about 4 years to read that many books. Oooph. Maybe my next project should be to simply finish the books on my "currently reading" list ... there are 10 on that. Not sure why I've left some of the books on the list since I've not touched several of them in a year. Hmm...

I'm also surprised your to-read list is so small! You've kept that thing on a leash!

After the first burst of putting books on the "to-read" list, I realized I didn't like how it tracked the time difference between when I realized I wanted to read something and when I actually read it. Now I'm trying to end this shameful chapter, and move forward without the guilt-inducing "to-read" list mocking my every turn. (I'll just have the "to-read" bookshelves mocking me instead. They're much quieter.)
