Picked up the Princcess Diaries series at the library.  Have not read anything in the last couple of days.  Been picking veggies in the garden, catching up on the Dexter series season 5 that finally was in the library, and canning/freezing tomoatoes that I got at the local farm market.

I think about 85% of my books are in my TBR pile (4 bookshelves with 7 shelves each and about 10 rubbermaid totes).

I'm reading Gone Missing by Linda Castillo. I'm also enjoying the Olympics. I often read and watch TV at the same time but with sports it's impossible to do both things at the same time.

I have both multiple piles and shelves.

I'm currently reading Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin. 

I'm trying hard to get rid of my TBR piles and only have books on shelves, but there are many I have not yet got around to reading...

I just finished Impossible, by Nancy Werlin. It's a sweet story of love, fantasy and suspense, inspired by the song, Scarborough Fair.  Next, I'm not sure what I'll read. Maybe the second "Grey" book.  ....Maybe something else, lol.

I have a list of books I have to read that I keep on my computer, along with the books I've read.

I also have a list, of sorts, in the Paperback Swap site and there I can put a note as to where in my many bookshelves I've got the book, lol.  Neither is complete - I'm always finding books I forgot to enter in one or both lists, but it's better than the haphazard way I did it before.

I'm going to start either The Orchid House by Lucinda Riley or A Bad Day For Sorry by Sophie Littlefield. They are both new to me authors.

Hi Ann,

I too loved Impossible by Nancy Werlin. And the other book she wrote in a similar world, wasn't nearly as wonderful.

I've finished Elsewhere and am now reading Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.

I finished The Fallen Angel by Daniel Silva, and am currently reading Night Watch by Linda Fairstein. Next up will be Where We Belong by Emily Giffin.

I keep track of my TBR list on Goodreads.
