“My reading list grows exponentially. Every time I read a book, it’ll mention three other books I feel I have to read. It’s like a particularly relentless series of pop-up ads.” (pg. 29)

Even though Jacobs is talking about religious study books, I definitely can relate. Just added thirty-one more books to The List this morning based on other book bloggers’ reviews and books mentioned within books.

Book Mentioned:

  • Jacobs, A. J. The Year of Living Biblically: One Man’s Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible. New York: Simon & Schuster, 2007. Print. 388 pgs. ISBN: 9780743291477.

    Your list is very inspiring. I never keep track of a TBR list like that, maybe I should. The amount of books that lies unread on my bookshelves already scares me out of wanting to add more to the list. But it’s true, you can’t blog for one day without finding at least 3 books you want to read.


    • *blushes* Thanks, candletea. I keep my to-read list on GoodReads so I can easily add books as I heard about them, and then every once and a while I will go in and manually update The List. I find this to be a very effective system, so maybe you could try that…

      I too get overwhelmed by the shear number of books on The List but, then again, I also find that I more selective when it comes to adding things to The List. And there’s always that little thrill that comes with crossing things, or in this case deleting them off The List.

        The thrill of crossing things of a list feels so great :-). I think I might try your manner, although I won’t publish it on my blog like that. Don’t want to be a copy-cat.
