This is the first Monday in September where I have every intention of being productive. Yesterday I was reminded that if I don't remember to do the important things... other, busy things, will fill my time. So, I'm starting this week with PURPOSE!  Which means... it's time to get to writing. Since it keeps getting bumped 'til "just a little later".
Shadow Kiss (Vampire Academy, #3)

I am reading, of course. (Duh. Always reading.) I've made it to Shadow Kiss in the VA series. I was advised to pick up Blood Promise at the same time, so I suspect I'll read that very next. NetGalley is ticking down, though... so I'm keeping The Sweetest Dark  at the top of my TBR. It's not coming out 'til next year, but it was my first Edelweiss book and I didn't read it fast enough, (Phthft! Book revoked!) so this is a bit of a contest for me, since I had to hunt it down so diligently. I WILL read this book!! I want to read Eon this month, too, for Calico Reaction's book club pick. It's been on my MUST READ list for a full year, now. Talk about overdue!

Riese: Kingdom FallingNot sure I'll get to Riese Kingdom Falling, which I can't even remember why I picked it up, but it looks great! I have Poison Study, too - my first with Maria Snyder. And Jane! I interviewed the author last week and couldn't believe I hadn't offered to review. I promptly "fixed" that.

So many books I want to read and yet, I'm not reading any faster than I was this summer, you know?  And if I start writing... it might slow down even more!  The silver lining would be catching up on review posts. I have soooo many delicious author-interviews, too. I just want to jump up and down in excitement over these posts!!  *Fist pumps wildly and ungracefully*

Thx to Sheila for hosting this fun It's Monday! What Are You Reading? I enjoy thinking about all the fun books I want to read. I re-organized a bunch of books on my Nook today since I've been accumulating more at a shocking rate lately. It seems like the less time I have to read, the more books I want to read. Almost like I could write a formula to describe the phenomena:

no TIME to read = more DESIRE to read. 

Or better yet...

NO time to read + MORE books in library = Happier Reader.

Too many books?'Cause it doesn't make sense that more books would make me happy if I don't have time to read. The size of all of our TBR piles would say there is some truth to this goofy balance.

I'm coming up on my 1 year bloggiversary next month. All I can think today is how blissful it is to have an abundance of too many books. Such a delicious problem. I did not not have this problem before blogging, and I've never been happier to have a "problem"!
