2022 To Be Read pile challenge

This year I’m joining Adam, from Roof Beam Reader, as he challenges and encourages us to read books that have been on our shelves for over a year and have not been read.
Maybe you’re like me. Maybe you have a few lying around the house that were given to you or that you bought because you wanted to read them, but you never did. I have about 30 or 40 of those.
I am pledging, or resolving, or committing to read 12 of those books this year. One for every month. That’s my goal. And as I finish each book, I will post a short update here on the blog.
It’s time I wake my little space in the internet up anyway.

Here is my list:

1. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
2. The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett
3. Commonwealth by Ann Patchett
4. The Hardy Boys, The House on the Cliff by Franklin W. Dixon
5. Blessings by Anna Quindlen
6. This is My Life by Meg Wolitzer
7. Rules of Civility by Amor Towles
8. Blind Dates, Bridesmaids and Other Disasters by Aspen Hadley
9. The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough
10. The Right Stuff by Tom Wolfe (audio)
11. Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe (audio)
12. You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me by Sherman Alexie (audio)

Alternates: (In case one or two of these don’t work out for me)

* Harry’s Trees by Jon Cohen
* Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan
