  1. Chartroose,
    I might have missed out on your explanation, but why do you have six TBRs? What does it mean? I looked at them and can’t make any sense. Of course, my brain is still fogged up after the Readathon!

  2. bybee,
    I might as well admit it…I’m totally insane! These are books that I want to read–each and every one of them. I read reviews and make lists and then rearrange the lists in various ways that are only comprehensible to me. Now I can’t even remember why I arranged them this way! I’m working on list 7 now. Please save me from myself!

  3. Oh, I don’t want to change you or save you…I’m totally charmed by people’s book weirdnesses. There were a lot in the McMurtry memoir which I’ll blog about soon.
