posted by soe 1:32 am

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday asks about the books we buy (or are given) that languish unread on our shelves. Here are ten of mine (I have way more than ten to choose from), including some from my favorite authors:

  1. Frederik Backman’s My Grandmother Asked Me To Tell You She’s Sorry
  2. Zadie Smith’s White Teeth
  3. The Odyssey by Homer
  4. Villette by Charlotte Bronte
  5. Toni Morrison’s Paradise
  6. The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver
  7. Everything Is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer
  8. On Writing by Stephen King
  9. Flora Thompson’s Lark Rise to Candleford
  10. Bill Bryson’s At Home

Any of these books you can’t believe I haven’t read and should get to immediately? What titles are on your list?

I have On Writing at home, too, but can’t remember if I ever read it or not. Yikes. 🙂

Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
