After seeing this meme, under the name the Bookshelf Traveling For Insane Times (begun, with guidelines, here) on three blogs, including Tracy at Bitter Tea and Mystery and Patti at Pattinaise, I finally decided to jump in.
The photo is of the top of my small TBR bookcase, and the items there are a jumble, as that is the only place I don’t arrange my books by genre, then alpha author. Note that a couple of these are already partially read. I didn’t make any effort to put these in nice order or set up, this is just the way it looks, including one that’s backwards for no particular reason. That said, here you go:
Notes: I recently got a batch of science fiction novels by Mack Reynolds, that’s why there are a couple of them on the left stack. I have been thinking about doing reviews of books that take place in a spaceport bar, thus three of those. The Gift of Rain has been on this stack for three years. I’m dying to read it, but something else always comes up (sigh). The Rex Stout is a non Nero Wolfe that I haven’t read. The Raymond Chandler I’ve read more than once but am kinda in the mood for again. The others tickled my brain for some reason.
Yes, I am actively working off these piles for my current reading. With so much here, and other things that suddenly catch my fancy, it’s almost a good thing the library isn’t open yet.
