So much to read, so little time!

So I've found a negative to owning a nook. Prior to purchasing the nook, I was pretty much at the mercy of what the library held in stock (very rarely do I actually purchase paper books), so my choice of reading material was...not quite limited, exactly, but pretty easy to prioritize. New books that I want to read come in just a few a time, so I was able to keep up.

With the nook, however, I'm just a little overwhelmed. Not only have I been purchasing eBooks, but I've discovered a site that connects readers with publishers who will send you digital advanced reader copies of books (or galleys), too! So I've got a ton of THOSE to read. And I found a subscription eBook site, so I've been downloading as much as I can from there. My "to-read" shelf currently tops out at over 40 books.

And then! Through the YALSA book list serve I was able to join an ARC-of-the-month type club, where each month the publisher sends us a new ARC. This month's ARC came on Monday and it was Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler, which isn't "officially" published until December. BUT I've already been waiting months to read it, so of course that book came first!

I've got other paper books here too, that I really want to read, but I'm so undecided! Should I read DUFF? Losing Faith? (both are on the Contemps Challenge list) Should I read my e-ARC of Delirium, the Lying Game, Adios, Nirvana, or The Abused Werewolf Support Group? I really do want to re-read the Hunger Games trilogy. Still haven't tackled Halo or Clockwork Angel. The Absolute Value of -1 looks great, too...and I'm not even going to mention the non-YA fiction I've been hoarding!

Seriously, the nook has opened up a completely new can of worms for me! What a dilemma, right? And yet, instead of tackling ANY of those books, I'm simply posting about them here!

Enjoy your reading!
