So. In a fit of annoyance at the impossibility to quickly find a particular book among those lining the living room bookshelf, I took upon myself to rearrange the books, this time by author's last name. (It was originally sorted by colour by my sister years ago. Aesthetically pleasing, yes, but there's no way I'd be able to remember what colour that Neil Gaiman book was.) I also lugged down some of the books that were in my room because the shelves were getting too full, and, well, if I kept my Dorothy Dunnett books to myself how was I supposed to entice other people into reading them?

Most the books left in my room are the unread ones -- those already take two rows of my shelf:


I'm currently reading Iris Murdoch's The Sea, The Sea.

Now, if I only could get some reading done . . . I have next Monday off and Tuesday's a public holiday, so here's to catching up with some reading. Or sleep. We'll see.

I bet no one is really interested in a list of books I read this year. So, instead, we'll have a post with pictures and toppling towers of books.

[personal profile] renay was talking over here about her resolution to read her height in books in 2010. I was impressed by this commitment (and also by how tall Renay is)! I totally want to do something like that but I had no idea how much I needed to read to reach my height. Out of curiosity, I stacked the books I read this year to see how tall the pile is. XD

Weekly Geeks questions for this week made me eye the to be read shelf suspiciously:

This week, tell us about a book (or books) you have been meaning to read. What is it? How long have you wanted to read it? And, why haven't you read it yet?

I have many books, but I'll just list two )

Currently re-reading: The Game of Kings by Dorothy Dunnett (oh shut up) and am thinking of starting Dunnett's Scales of Gold in a bit and maybe throw some science fiction in between.
