To be Read

I finished my most recent book and wasn't sure what I would pick off of my shelf read next. I have a shelf of books that I am trying to get through. I bought the books at various times and have always preempted them with other books. I am trying not to request books from the library or buy anything until I finish the shelf (exceptions of course for book club books and amazing deals like the copy of Spook County that I picked up a Big Lots for $3. But I plan on going ot a William Gibson reading this month and will take that and maybe a couple of others to get signed).

With my mind drawing a blank and wanting to read some of the more recent additions as opposed to some books that had been collecting dust for a while, I decided to use the only truly random method; a child. I called my daughter over and asked her which one I should read next. She picked Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley. I have read only one other book by MZB and it was a Darkover novel that I didn't care for. So, I wasn't looking forward to it. I pulled it down and it was sooooooo heavy. It comes in at about 900 pages.

Thanks a lot, Ashli. Guess I had to read it sometime
