So many books, so little time

Reading is one of my big passions and I have amassed a large number over the years. I am a member of a book group which meets once a month. While I really enjoy reading new authors and things I would have never picked for myself, I do feel it hinders me ploughing through my own stash. This is especially true since I have been studying for my CIM exams.

As a lover of lists I thought I would record all my unread books on here - perhaps it will motivate me to read them all!
