I have an ever growing list of Personal Development, Network Marketing, and High Fantasy books, that I can't wait to read, right as soon as I am done reading the ones I am reading now, I always check more out from the Library or find them on sale, or second hand, and the list keeps growing, and the purchased books yet to read keeps growing, it seems as it will never end, and that is just the way I like it. Sincerely and With Appreciation.

I've always got a massive list of books I want to read. I tend to stick them in my amazon wishlist, so I don't forget the books I've spotted and thought looked good, because all too often when the opportunity to get some books arises, my mind goes blank and I can't remember many of the ones I wanted to read. at the moment I'm reading let the right one in, because I really enjoyed the film. the original one. I'll watch the remake, it sounds like they've got the right approach to it, so it might be good. but it didn't NEED remaking so soon after the original

Wow, it happens to me too, though i have a more old school style of listing the books i want to buy, i write them on a notebook, its crazy sometimes how i want to read so many books at the same time, I wish i am superman, so i could read as many interesting books as i want in a day... I searched on this book, let the right one in, wow, looks so interesting but i dont think its available here in my country...

I have a looooong line of unread books that I have to read as well as a list of books that I want to read but don't have yet. I haven't read the Sandman series, and much of Neil Gaiman (I've only read American Gods). I also want to read the biography of Queen Christina of Sweden. There are two available at my favorite bookstore and if I get a wild hair, I might just buy both :) I also want to get a lot of graphic novels. They're expensive and hardly go on sale. One book that I have but will have to read like SUPER SOON is the third book in the Hunger Games trilogy, Mockingjay. I can't wait to finish my current read and pick that up! :)

When i went out of the school to work,i seldom read books in daily life.I know that i should read books in daily life.Just as you said,we should have a list of future books which we want to read.Without reading books,we can not gain progress in life.

I have something I call my "to-read" shelf. It's a shelf on my smaller bookcase where I put all the books that I've bought but haven't gotten a chance to read yet. For the first half of this year it was pretty empty, but for the past few months it has had the exact same number of books on it no matter how much I read! I keep going out and shopping for more books! It's a problem of mine. When I have money I tend to buy books without thinking about how backed up I am on my to-read shelf. Right now there are 14 books on my to-read shelf. If I didn't buy any more then I could probably finish them all in a couple weeks. I also have a "to-read" list on goodreads of books that I want to read but don't have a copy of. I'll probably go to the library when I finish my "to-read" shelf books because I'm running low on money again. The library is such a great resource for mad-fast readers like me! Do you have a local library in your area? I think I've taken mine a bit for granted because now I'm hearing about people who don't have one. The library is great for free-reads. You have to bring them back.. but hey! When you're broke you can't be picky.

I wish we have, but i don't think books is a priority in this country, we don't have a local library, a national one, we do have but its too far from our house maybe two hours travel, ive never been there, our school library is too small too, too often you can't even find the reference you need there, i know its not good to rant like this, but i really wish we have a better library around, because your right, you can't just keep buying books, im broke more often than not. I have bunch of books i need to read in here too, but when i do have a money, which i rarely do, i buy more books thinking, it would be a long time, before i can have money, so before ill have more, i am probably finished with the books that i have bought.

That makes me sad. I have like eight local libraries within a half hour driving distance and they all have most of the books that I want to read. Maybe you should get a petition going so you can get a decent library!

I enjoy reading and I do try to keep a list of books that I want to read. I also try to keep a list of movies that I want to see. I go to the local library a lot and check books out as I can't afford to buy every book that I want to read. Do you have a library that you could use?

I sorta have a list of books I want to read, even though only in my mind, so to speak; it's not actually a list I wrote down or anything. I'm currently reading "A Song Of Ice And Fire" by George R.R. Martin, I read the first volume and I have 3 more to go so far (since it's still an unfinished series)... but I haven't gotten around to getting those books yet. I also have the Poetic Edda (a very nice book about Norse mythology) pending to read, my boyfriend gave it to me as a present :) Apart from those books, I'd also like to read some of the Discworld books, since I've heard they're really nice.

As far as I am concerned, I think I do have a lot of books to read in the near future.For me, I think I am a computer lover,who usually surf the Internet a lot in my daily life. So I have collected a lot of books about the computer. Maybe I can become a professional one in computer.For the books may mainly about ASP,PHP and some other books.
