I own 52 books that I have not read, not including the one that I'm reading now, which I also have not read all the way.

I'm realizing there is something wrong with that number. Like really wrong. So I'm going to do something about it. I'm going to actually read them. I mean really, some have been sitting on my shelves for a year or two. Haven't touched them.

So I am challenging myself and the challenge is for me not to buy another single book until I've read all the other ones I own. The plus side of this is maybe I will go through them quickly because I love buying books. The downside of this is, that's a lot of books.

I'm going to use this blog to keep me accountable. I may lie, but you'll never know! (Just kidding...)

I will post each time I've started a book and write perhaps a brief summary after I've finished. And the cycle will continue... 52 more times.

Currently I am reading There Is No Me Without You by Melissa Fay Greene. I took Devon's advice and it's been well worth it. I'm not through yet, but I'm loving (and hating) it. If you're ready to be slammed in the face with a harsh dose of reality (and to swear off buying brand name pharmaceuticals at all costs) then this is definitely a book for you.

Good luck with you challenge! I tried that in August and it lasted until the next time I went to Wal-Mart and saw a book that I just had to have...I'm pretty sure I haven't read that one either :)
