I'm not going to finish all the books I planned to read!

You see, it's like this; I have a habit of reading books that are not on my list.  As as direct result these books will have to pushed to 2012:

African American Literature Beyond Race: An Alternative Reader by Gene Andrew Jarrett.  This book is a compilation of short stories and excerpts from novels.  I have read some it but not all.  It is the first book I will finish in 2012.

Twelve Steps To A Compassionate Life by Karen Armstrong.  The third chapter on self compassion said to not go forward reading until the concepts it taught were a part of real life.  Next year I will be ready to move on.

As I Lay Dying William Faulkner

Devil In A Blue Dress Walter Mosley

Free Enterprise Michelle Cliff

The Warmth Of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson.  This recently came out in paperback so I might buy it.  I had to keep taking it back to the library.
