2017 Books Challenge Part 4

Wendy the Super Librarian has saved us all and put together a much needed challenge. It’s based on books you already own but haven’t gotten around to reading. All readers have these and they have a nasty habit of growing faster than we can read. Well, actually it’s a yummy habit.
