I have just found a new resource- Internet Archive, thanks to this post on The Neglected Books Page. I've now acquired texts of the following books to add to my e-reader. Between this and the Gutenberg Library, I could easily spend hours browsing through titles and add tons more material to the kindle. Is this a good or a bad thing? Who knows when I'll ever find time to get to the e-books again. I've even forgotten what's on there at this point. They wait patiently for another travel day...

Stone Wall by Mary Cassals
Modeling My Life by Janet Scudder
Out on a Limb by Louise Baker

These titles were gleaned from my reading of Black Swan, White Raven:

Snow White by Donald Barthelme

The Nightingale by Kara Dalkey
Blue Bamboo by Osamu Dazia
The Seventh Swan by Nicholas Stuart Gray
The Tricksters by Margaret Mahy

So many good books!

I love your TBR posts! I'd like to do one as well, but the number of books I have waiting for me is daunting.

Jeane said...

Oh, it often feels overwhelming! Sometimes I've thought of making a calculation: the average number of books I read per month compared to the number of books I abandon compared to the number of books I add to my TBR. I'm sure it's an exponentially growing number, so if I don't get stricter about abandoning books that really aren't thrilling me, I will never get all to all the ones I want to read. But isn't that half the fun of it?

Then there's the number of books I keep on my shelf that I want to reread someday... not sure how to ever factor that in.

I do calculations like that once a year, in my year wrap up post. I suspect most of my readers don't care, but I really enjoy seeing the stats.

Jeane said...

I count stats and the end of the year, too, but I've never included a TBR count.

So many books!! It always makes me feel so happy to look at the books I haven't read yet -- I'll never, ever, ever run out. :D
