The big ‘to read’ pile

I’m taking a leaf out of my friend Addison’s book. She compiled a list of the books she owns but has not read yet and is crossing them off as she goes. It occurred to me that I should do the same. Many of these books have been sat on my TBR pile for more than 8 years. It’s time to read and the satisfaction of crossing them off will give me an incentive. Below is a list of all the books I have to read, more than 70 (eek!!), although I couldn’t be bothered to list the entire set of Nocturnes. There are too many of them.
