Books I've Always Meant to Read

There are so many amazing books in the world. I know I'll never be able to read all of them. And while that bums me out I've also accepted it - sort of. However, there are a number of books that I've always meant to read but for some reason or other never gotten around to them. I think it's time I start reading the books I've meant to get around to. For example, I've had 1984 by George Orwell sitting on my shelf for a few years now. I've even picked it up and started it a few times. Only to end up distracted by something else. The thing is, it draws me in and I'm very curious about the story but I end up putting it aside. I think it's time I actually read the darn book.

There are others I've been meaning to get to, as well. Such as: A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, Little Women by Louisa Alcott, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte and The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne - to name a few.

It's not just classics that I've put off reading, either. There are plenty of contemporary books and authors that I've been meaning to try but just haven't. I am going to try and make more effort to read the books and authors I've always meant to try.

What books or authors have you always meant to read but just haven't made the time?

  1. I'm always up for reading one of these books for the book club one day, if you need a change of pace.
