I have this big stack of books hanging onto the top of my To Be Read pile, which means they’ve landed on the nightstand. They all have bookmarks in them, meaning I’ve read at least a few pages, sometimes a lot more than that. I stacked them up in no particular order and took a picture (click it to see it bigger). So,
Which book should I finish – and review – next? Vote for as many as you like, I’ll tally it all up next Tuesday and publish the result.
