Working through My TBR Pile

How's your TBR pile coming along? Mine is still a mountain, but I'm making some progress.

Since April 18th, I've read 13 books, some of which I spoke of last time, so I won't go into the details again. I'm doing my best not to take on many new books; though I had pre-ordered The Way I See It: A Look Back at My Life on Little House by Melissa Anderson from Amazon and I broke away from my TBR pile to read that one. In case you missed it, Little House on the Prairie is my favorite show. While I don't get a chance to watch television these days, I have all the seasons on DVD. I've seen some of these episodes so many times that I could recite them by heart. I posted that review over at Laura's Little Houses if you would like to read it.

Here's what the TBR pile looks like right now. Anything in bold has been read. If I mentioned them last time, they've been deleted from the list.

Wow! That's some list. You must be a heck of a quick reader.
