Top Ten Tuesday: Books We Bought...But Still Have Not Read

This is my version.
Look at the eye patch!
Hellllloooooooooooooo book bloggers! It is Tuesday again (the days of the week are wont to do that, to come each week and all). That means its Top Ten Tuesday hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's TTT is dedicated to books we felt like we HAD to buy...but are still sitting on our shelves. Unread. OPPS!  Since we are dedicated library users, this is not too long a list for any of us. And I feel proud!

Grad Student:
  1. Ulysses by James Joyce. Has anyone ever gotten through this book other than English majors? Oye, it is hard! But I bought it at the Strand, NYC's ultimate independent bookstore (full disclosure: I felt like a hipster doing it. Soooooo intellectual. And then I failed to read it).
  2. Grey Eyes by Brandon Alston. It was free. I felt I needed it. I can't even tell you what it is about yet!
  3. Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs. I WANTED this, but I haven't read it yet.
Crazy Camper:
  1. A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole. This is classic, but somehow I cannot begin to read it. (Editors comment, aka Grad Student: CC thought this book was called A Conference of Dunces. That proves her " I cannot begin to read it" point all too well.)
Goosie Mama:
  1. Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by 


  1. Hahaha Ulysses was inflicted on me at university. I only managed to read a section of the beginning and a section of the end! Awful.
    Here's my TTT post :)

  2. LOL - I was the same way with SWEET VENOM. I didn't buy it, but I did make sure I got a review copy. And, yet, there it sits, gathering dust on my shelf.

  3. OMG I totally forgot I even OWNED Pride & Prejudice & Zombies. Man, I suck!

  4. I buy SO MANY books to make me feel smart... but I never read them!


Comments? Heck ya!
