Backlog of (lots of) reading!

The Backlog

I took a look at the reading challenges I participated, some of which are way, way overdue, and found that I need to clear a total of 17 books by the end of this year. This is what I need to finish reading (oh dear!):

"What's In A Name" Challenge
  1. Germ
  2. Oregon Breeze

"Unread Authors" Challenge

  1. Paint It Black

"2008 TBR" Challenge

  1. The Mist of Avalon
  2. In the Forest
  3. Summer Lightning
  4. Prodigal Summer
  5. The Forest of Hours
  6. The Rights of Desire
  7. Grand Ambition
  8. The Service of Clouds
  9. Here Today

"Spring Reading Thing" Challenge

  1. The McKinsey Mind
  2. Stupid Ugly Unlucky and Rich
  3. The Almost Moon

"R.I.P. III" Challenge

Can I do it? Will I be able to finish all of the above before December 31?...

Any day we wish; we can discipline ourselves to change it all. Any day we wish; we can open the book that will open our mind to new knowledge. Any day we wish; we can start a new activity. Any day we wish; we can start the process of life change. We can do it immediately, or next week, or next month, or next year. We can also do nothing. [...] You have the ability to totally transform every area in your life - and it all begins with your very own power of choice. -- Change Begins with Choice by Jim Rohn

I definitely choose to do something. I choose to finish what I set out to do and follow through my plans.
