Booking Through Thursday - To Be Read Hopefully This Year, But I Know I'm Dreaming

Booking Through Thursday is hosted by Deb; Deb says:

An idea I got from The Toddled Dredge (via K for Kat). Here’s what she said:
“So here today I present to you an Unread Books Challenge. Give me the list or take a picture of all the books you have stacked on your bedside table, hidden under the bed or standing in your shelf – the books you have not read, but keep meaning to. The books that begin to weigh on your mind. The books that make you cover your ears in conversation and say, ‘No! Don’t give me another book to read! I can’t finish the ones I have!’ “

I have .. oh I don't know.. 200 books to read... and the list grows and grows and grows. These are the books that I chose to share, that are on my shelf, waiting to be read. The selections show a variety of topics that I am interested in. You can see my Goodreads shelf which also shows ones that I would like to read but does not necessarily mean I own them here.
