Clearing through my shelves

Last month I did a serious culling of my shelves, and added to my resale box a small pile of books that I had to admit I would never read.


The shelf space I created has already vanished.


I need to shift gears and get though the books that I'm holding onto only so that I can read them before selling them off. Fortunately I've polished off nearly all of my remaining reading obligations for the next couple of weeks, so I should have time to get through 2-3 books that I've been meaning to tackle for awhile. It will make only the smallest of dents, but it will be nice to dig a little further into the books  already have rather than the books publishers keep sending me unbidden (yeah, I know, FWP).
