I resolve to read 10 books from my To-Be-Read pile before buying a new book!

*PBS books don't count, though, since they're FREE - wheeeeeeeee!*

I have SO many books stacked up, waiting to be read and often the temptation to pick up that cool new book at the store is too much to pass up. But since I also resolve to save more money this year, I will resist the temptation and make a list of the new books I see and want and put them on my Wish List here.

Then I can make a sizable dent in my TBR pile and have more books to post here for others! :D

I have collected all the novels written by W. E. B. Griffin to date (His newest is on order now).  Currently I have all hard covers, except for about five (out of 42 or 43 books).  I resolve to replace the five paperbacks with hard covers within the next few months.   On another subject, I want to look for other authors I like to read as well.  In most cases, I do not keep copies of books I have read, but there are many authors I like to read.  I must keep looking for new authors to expand the reading matrial available.  With new authors, I find there are several released books available to me and most of them available from PBS.  Being able to obtain them from PBS makes it possible to get them for the lowest cost.  Cost is something very important to me since my only income now is from my Social Security Check.I also hope to start getting out more over the next year.  Currently, a knee operation has curtailed my getting out of the house, but I truly don't mind.  However let m,e close by wishing all PBS members a very happy and productive New Year in 2009 (gosh, where did 2008 go?).
