And the TBR Pile Grows…

April 8, 2009 @ 8:33 pm | Filed under: ,

…faster than it shrinks.

One step forward, two steps back, so the saying goes. Only in this case it’s: one book behind me, half a dozen ahead. I finished Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict today, about which more later, maybe (I didn’t love it), which was one of the fourteen books from the TBR stack I shared in March. But after a stroll through blogland today, I find I have added (gulp) six more titles to my library hold list.

Tomorrow I’ll come back and add links to where I read about these. For now, in the last minute before LOST, a quick list:

The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey (but of course!). (That link goes to the series website, which has fun puzzles and games, including a Morse code tutorial. Adding it here for my kids’ easy access.)

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin (read this many moons ago, inspired to reread by a Theodora Goss blog entry, which visit was inspired in turn by Sarah of Knitting the Wind)  ***Updated: Scott just IMd me to say we own a copy. I thought we did but I couldn’t find it. Not that I really put my all into looking, if you know what I mean.***

Company of Liars by Karen Maitland (you had me at Canterbury Tales + thriller). (But WHO is you? I’ve searched my Reader and can’t locate the link.)

What Happens on Wednesday by Emily Jenkins (just read about this on Nina’s blog two minutes ago)

Uglies by Scott Westerfield

And now I’m off to see what Sawyer is reading tonight.* Maybe I’ll need to add something else to my list.

*Whoops, I forgot. No Sawyer last night. Good Ben stuff, though!
