I have this habit of starting a book and never finishing it. I will have time to read a chapter or two, put it down and then I'll get "too busy" to read and it will be months before I pick it up again. By that time, I would have forgotten what I read before and I have to start from the beginning again, and the cycle starts over.
I have set aside all of the unread/unfinished books and placed them in a neat pile by my nightstand. I am hoping this will remind me to pick one up and read it every now and then. I just wish all of them were the type of books you just can't put down. I love books like that. I found a great one this summer - Just Checking: Scenes from the life of an obsessive-compulsive by Emily Colas - just a random find while browsing around Barnes & Noble. It was fascinating and hilarious and I was reading every free moment I had. Definitely a re-read.
