My Reading Backlog

A couple of days ago I posted to Facebook about my tendency to pick up another book before I finish the one I'm reading. I provided a list of 29 books I am "in the middle of".

I thought that was bad.

It got worse.

I started looking through my Nook app and kept finding books there that I had started and not finished and then completely forgot about. I guess Nook books are easily "out of sight and out of mind". I started adding those to my list of 29, then decided I might as well also add the books I've bought and not yet read.

The list of half-read and unread books now has 69 entries. (sigh)

What's the old joke about how to eat an elephant? (one bite at a time).

So I have categorized and prioritized my list. My intent is to read all the Group A books, then move on to the Group B books, etc. I think I'll set a reminder for a year from now to review the list and evaluate my progress. LOL

For what it's worth, here's the list:
