Every self-respecting bibliophile has them: those books that have been on your shelf and/or to-read list for ages, but you've never gotten around to them. You mean to, you want to, but when it comes time to pick your next tome, you somehow skip them.
I am no exception to this rule. Most of these books have been hogging space on my (three) bookcases, as well as on my Goodreads to-read list. For the record, cleaning out bookshelves is just as important as cleaning out closets, so once and for all I decided to give these books a go so I could either return them to their owners, trade them in for new books if I didn't like them, or find them a permanent spot for keeps. And Lord, none of them really set my world on fire. Neither Here Nor There was the clear winner; all the rest were kind of a struggle to force myself through. Undertake them at your own risk.
Do you have any books that have been sitting on your shelf for ages? If so, what are they? When do you think you'll read them?
