The Reading Pile

I know people who have dozens, or even hundreds of books in their 'to read' pile and for that reason I have tried desperately to keep mine down to something sane, say around twenty. I keep bumping over that, especially at Christmas and in the New Year sales, and also due to my low reading rate of the last two months or so (although it's picked up recently, hence the spate of new reviews).

The pile currently consists of:

Matter, Use of Weapons, Player of Games and The Bridge by Iain M. Banks
The Final Empire and Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson
Storm Front and Fool Moon by Jim Butcher
Off Armageddon Reef by David Weber
Gridlinked by Neal Asher
Neuropath by R. Scott Bakker
Gaunt's Ghosts: The Founding by Dan Abnett
Ilium, Olympos and The Terror by Dan Simmons
Without Warning by John Birmingham
Axis by Robert Charles Wilson
The Gunslinger by Stephen King
Ghost Story by Peter Straub
Rome Burning by Sophia McDougall
Legend, Knights of Dark Renown and The First Chronicles of Druss the Legend by David Gemmell

That is, of course, not including the re-read pile, the books I want to read again in the near future (say sometime this year):

Consider Phlebas by Iain M. Banks
Spin by Robert Charles Wilson
The Helliconia Trilogy by Brian W. Aldiss

And that's not including any new ARCs that turn up in the near future. Still, onwards and upwards.

Currently reading: The Braided Path (omnibus) by Chris Wooding
Currently watching: Lost Season 5 (TV), Battlestar Galactica Season 4.5 (TV)
