You Said You'd Read Me~ So You Lied~ TBR 2012 Reading Challenge

You'll have to just follow that horrible linkything above because God knows I don't know how else to get it to you in a more presentable way.  Perhaps one of my good friends can tell me how in the comments below?

At any rate, if you do follow the link you'll find that this is a challenge other devout bloggers and I have imposed upon ourselves because of the wonderful, worthwhile and gorgeous books we have that we weren't able to get read this year....but wanted desperately to read.  We were off reading and writing reviews and didn't  have enough time to get these books listed read, too.

Like fine china and silver sitting on the shelves of my china cabinet and side board, these perfectly delicious books below have been killing me with dagger-eyed stares every time I pick up a book I need to read for a review!   I go to bed worrying myself to death about not having a chance to read them.  I try not to feel guilty about taking time away from them that I give to others.   It's not unlike a working mother, who has to provide food for the table, must feel about the children she only gets to kiss goodnight when she comes home late, I guess.

I love my books, even those I haven't had a chance to read, yet! I chose them, I bought them and I love them.

So, here's my list of those neglected but beloved ones that must be treated properly in 2012 to make up for the neglect of 2011: (and, as an aside from this...I see a few of them in the challenge pic above that must be on somebody else's list ...hmmm)

1.  Divergent
2.  Delirium
3.  Tiger's Curse
4.  Hush
5.  The Map of Time
6.  The Witch's Daughter
7.  Timeless
8.  The Biography of Mrs. Tom Thumb
9.  America Pacifica
10. A Question of Death: Phryne Fisher Treasury

Well, there you have it.  I feel like "True Confessions" and a sort of cleansing of the soul, but the books are still staring at me.  I'm going to segregate them and put them in a neat little pile of their own.  I may cover them with a pretty little cloth.  Ahemm 

 Then, on Sundays, I'll take one out and read it until I've done the right thing by them.  Poor slighted books, it's not their faults...they're wonderful books or they wouldn't even be in my house to begin with.  They have gorgeous stories to tell.

If you're a book slammer, or a book thrasher, or a book stacker who takes the Scarlett O'Hara way out like I have, then you may want to join us in the 2011 Challenge.  Click above if you dare.

I'm exhausted now from confessing.  This stuff might be good for the soul, but it gives you the munchies... Good-night.
