My virtual shelf of books I'm reading, am trying to read, have read, or want to read in the future. Just like me, it's a work-in-progress. Check back periodically to see what's shaping me. These point to my GoodReads page where you can see my highlights and comments. I used to only read one book at a time but now I read several at a time depending on my mood and allow myself the luxury of abandoning a book that isn't quite holding my interest. Books in the finished section do not represent all the books I have ever read. That proved to be an impossible task so I gave up and simply began recording the books I have read since I began my Kindle adventure. This section also does not capture my reading habits outside of actual books which can be quite voracious at times.
