The previous list I was referencing is just too bulky. I've pared it down to just the books that I haven't read.

I've also decided on a couple of new rules for myself:

1. A book must get read within two weeks unless it is ungodly long.

2. A book can be checked out from the library a maximum of three tries.

3. If the book is unread after the third attempt, it will be replaced on the list with a book that I like.
