I don’t need to buy or check out another book until these are read

Most of this list is not in order. And if anyone sees a title that I should pick up first or one that doesn’t deserve my time, lemme know.

Trying to Save Piggy Sneed - Irving, Strange Pilgrims - Marquez

I’ve read these last two before, so they sit at the bottom of my list; they’re still on because they’re worth another read.

When I look at this list, I notice how old some of the titles are. Maybe I missed a lot of literature in high school and college. My mother handed some of them off to me. When I’m in the bookstore and see all the new titles, few of them appeal to me, and it’s because I’m thinking of these old titles on my shelf at home. Besides, these are paid for.

In what conceivable amount of time could I read all these books? Even with a concerted effort, 2-3 years?
