13 May

Today’s photo requires explanation. Lately I’ve gotten off-track with reading. We got the Kindle, and I started reading lots of free stuff on it. And then netGalley’s publishers made nearly everything available for the Kindle, so I went wacky with that, too. I’ve had great fun reading, but I’ve neglected a pile of books I really want to read. I’ve also started (and usually finished) some real stinkers on the Kindle. I have to remember that even though I ADORE netGalley, and it’s opening me up to being able to read – for free – lots of books I want to read anyway, just because I can doesn’t mean I should. Just because a title’s available on netGalley doesn’t mean I have to read it! So I’m committing to reading nothing else until this stack of books is done. I’ve wanted to read these for so long, but everything else got in the way. And I haven’t really been enjoying books lately. So I’m going to use the rest of May and all of June (and probably into July) to re-orient myself. You’ll see that my Kindle’s on the stack, and that’s because some of my most-wanted to-reads are on it. So  here’s my list of what’s coming next:

Someday You’ll Thank Me for This: The Official Southern Ladies’ Guide to Being a “Perfect” Mother by Gayden Metcalfe and Charlotte Hays (first because it’s a library book)
If You Were Here by Jen Lancaster
So Not Happening by Jenny B. Jones
Trouble in Bloom by Heather Webber
Eggsecutive Orders by Julie Hyzy
I Heart New York by Lindsey Kelk
Sprinkle with Murder by Jenn McKinlay
Christianity and Liberalism by J. Gresham Machen (Kindle; for “reading the classics” with Tim Challies)
The Three Weissmanns of Westport by Cathleen Schine (ordered from Amazon; June book club)
Jane Austen: A Life Revealed by Catherine Reef (Kindle, via netGalley)
The Royal Treatment by Lindsey Leavitt (e-book on computer via netGalley)
Putting Makeup on Dead People by Jen Violi (e-book on computer via netGalley)

By the way, Disney-Hyperion? You need to get it together and make your netGalley titles available for the Kindle! Come on, y’all!
