Off the Shelf Challenge

The Off the Shelf challenge is being hosted by Dutchie of Bookish Ardour at her special Challenge Blog. The intent is to read the books you already have and get them "off the shelf". I have hoarding issues with books and my list (below) is too long. I have got to stop buying books and start clearing off these shelves. So, to that end, I am signing on at the Trying level - 15 books.

I made a similar list two years in January of 2009. I did a quick count and saw that there were about sixty of the same books on this list that were on that list. That list was a little over a hundred books and this list is a little under two hundred books so I am getting worse not better.

Here's where I'll keep track of what I read for this challenge:
