This week: Top Ten Books That Have Been On My Shelf For The Longest But I’ve Never Read
- Labyrinth by Kate Mosse– I got this book as a gift after I was done high school, and it sounded interesting. I just never got around to reading it, back then I played video games much more and I was worrying about college and other things.
- The Lord of the Rings Trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien– This is all three books, and they’re my mom’s, so they’re one of the first editions that got sold. I was going to try to read them when I was younger, but then the movie came out and I forgot about attempting them.
- The Princess Bride by William Goldman– I got this one as a gift, because I loved the movie back then. I let a bunch of my friends borrow it, but never got around to reading it myself
- A Brief History of the Vikings by Jonathan Clements- I love these kinds of history books, I have a bunch of different ones in my collection since they were cheap at the store last year. Some I have to get through still, but this one has been there the longest.
- Riven by Carol Anne Biddle– This book was printed at my work, and perfect bound by me! The book sounded interesting so I kept a copy for myself, since we had overs.
- Dracula by Bram Stoker– Borrowed this from a friend, and never got to reading it. She had two copies so didn’t mind not getting it back.
- Witchcraft by Clary Croft– I had all intentions of reading this for the Bout of Books October edition, but many other awesome books came first, and I never got around to reading this one.
- The Knights of the Holy Grail by Tim Wallace-Murphy– Joe and I found a few interesting history books on sale, we each got one, and this was the one I did. I haven’t gotten to it yet, he’ll probably read it before me haha.
- Celtic Mythology by Geddes & Grosset- I got this at an Irish store because it sounded awesome, and I plan to start it soon, just got distracted by other books.
- The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown- This book was given to me to borrow and read, but I lost contact with that person, and I never felt like reading the book. I don’t know if I’ll ever read it, but it looks nice on the shelf!
