Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Each week,
they post a different topic, and you get to create your own top ten list. This week's topic:
1) Walt Disney: The Triumph of the American Imagination by Neal Gabler - I'm a HUGE Disney fan. I love everything Disney, constantly research all about the company, it's history, basically everything. My mom gave me this book for Christmas a few years ago, since I've already read a few Disney biographies, thinking I would devour this one just like the others. Alas, there it sits on my bookshelf, just waiting to be picked up. I want to read it, but for some reason, just don't get around to it.
2) Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy - I tried to read this one last year but after my carpal tunnel kicked in about 10 minutes after picking it up, back down it went. I know, lame excuse.
3) The Weird Sisters by Eleanor Brown - I keep on meaning to read this book! But that I forget that it's there and read something else instead. I really want to read it before the year is out, though.
4) Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson - another one that I forget about.
5) Naked by David Sedaris - I really want to read this book. I love Sedaris's work. I just devour his books and then don't like the next two books I read afterwards. Sedaris just jades me towards other writers (anyone else experience this with their favorite author?)
6) The Kommandant's Girl by Pam Jenoff - a great WWII fiction writer. I have read her other books and enjoyed them, but I'm trying to read so many other works of WWII fiction that I forget about this book. Maybe next year I can fit it in.
7) North River by Pete Hamill - another book that is just chilling in my TBR pile, waiting to be picked up and read. And I love Hamill's books, so not sure why I haven't made time for this one yet.
8) Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte - I have every intention of reading this book before 2012 is over! I have gone long enough without reading it!
9) Amsterdam by Ian McEwan - I have been avoiding this book for one specific reason: I loved Atonement so much that I doubt this book (or any of his other books) will come close and I will feel disappointed.
So, which books have been on your shelf the longest?
