I spent part of this morning compiling a reading list.

My husband and I own a lot of books. A LOT. We've spent every Christmas since we've been together asking for bookstore gift cards. This has resulted in more books that I can possibly keep up with, especially considering how much of my reading has actually been fanfiction over the past two or three years. It's time to work through some of the list.

These are all books we own that I have not read and want to read. They are in no particular order.

These are books that I'm partway through. This is how I read - pick something up, set it down, read something else, pick it back up, maybe days, maybe months, maybe years later.

The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss
Cloud & Ashes: Three Winter's Tales by Greer Gilman
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
Drood by Dan Simmons
The Spirit Lens by Carol Berg
Raised by Wolves: Treasure by W. A. Hoffman
The Persian Boy by Mary Renault
Boneshaker by Cherie Priest

These are books that I haven't started yet at all but really want to read:

And that doesn't include all the re-reading I desperately want to get to.

It looks incredibly daunting, to see it like I need to spend less time online, clearly! I'm a fast reader, but that doesn't matter if I can't tear myself away from my laptop.

Anyone read any of these? Got comments? Recs? Warnings? I'd be curious to hear!
