This photo (thanks Harlequin) definitely describes me.

Being an avid reader, I also have a problem with purchasing books. I purchase books and then they either sit on my shelf (or now that I have a Kindle) sit in my cloud and just wait to be read. I have no idea if I’ll ever get a chance to read everything that I’ve bought but I’m making it my mission to at least try.
Here I will start listing the books I purchase. Hopefully they will end up on my Books (Read) page.
