Next reading project

No, I'm not going to read some horrible list that was assembled by nostalgia. Instead, something more practical.

I'm going to track all the books and graphic novels I've bought (or received) but haven't read yet. At least it will be a guilty reminder every time I buy yet another book that I have some waiting for me at home.

This is going to be scary...but don't let that stop you from giving me more books.
