In reading a lot of other book blogs, I know that I am not alone in my lengthy list of books I want to read. :-) It seems that others share this same dilemma. I think that this will be my last year of participating in challenges, as much as I enjoy making the lists. I want to concentrate on reading the books that really pique my interest. That doesn't really narrow the list much :-) but I like the freedom of reading what I want when I want.

As I steadily complete books and lower the number of books in my TBR mountain, more books come out that intrigue me and capture my interest. It seems that the To-Be-Read list is ever growing. I think I need to accept that I'm just not going to be able to read all the books that I want to read in my lifetime. If no more books got published, I could probably complete my current list. But there will always be more books coming out. There are some subjects that particularly grab my interest, so it is hard to resist books coming out about those particular topics. Such as friendships/relationships, the church and what it's for, social media and how to use it for good.

One of the nice things about birthdays is that my husband and I try to get things for each other off our wish lists. So inevitably I get a few books. :-)
This year, my gifts were spread out a bit. A few weeks ago, I was given the first one:
One of my favorite authors!
Then, in time for our annual Monopoly night event, I received the Star Trek Continuum Monopoly version.
Last night, I got a wireless mouse for my laptop! YAY! Tired of dealing with extra wire looping around.
Today was my final gifts:
Love me some books! An enjoyable birthday - we went out to eat at Champps, where I got my favorite dessert - cookie espress - chocolate chip cookie with ice cream and whipped cream on top. It is out of this world delicious!
