Books I’m Currently Not Reading.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww yeah. But not really.

Currently, on my to-read-but-not-actually-reading list, I have Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls, Rising Strong, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, Scattershot: My Bipolar Family, and The WordPress Absolute Beginner’s Guide. At any given time, I am carrying at least two of these around with me while actively not reading them. I’m convinced that at any moment, the urge to actually commit to reading a book will strike me and I must be prepared.

Other books I’m not reading right now include:

The Giving Tree

The Allegory of the Cave

Word Freak: Heartbreak, Triumph, Genius, and Obsession in the World of Competitive SCRABBLE Players

Clarice Bean Spells Trouble

The Handmaid’s Tale

Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Cookbook

The Selected Poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke

Cruel Shoes

The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove

Pippi Longstocking

Knitting Without Tears: Basic Techniques and Easy-To-Follow Directions for Garments to Fit All Sizes

Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed

I encourage you to take a moment out of your day to pick up a book, look at it, tell yourself you really need to get around to reading it, and then set that book aside to check your phone.
