    I am game to try! Maybe we can start a thread with the list of items - then update the post by writing what book we read beside the item. If we have the book available on ebook, mark that down too incase someone wants to read it and does not have it. The hardest one for me will be 'a book that has been on your shelf for more than 5 years' not many actual books in this house that are not kid books as I have gone to ebooks!

    I finished Her Fearful Symmetry (good, but not nearly as good as her debut). Started Skinny Italian for some inspiration in the kitchen.

    I could do it (almost easily) except for this one - I don't have ANY books on my bookshelf I haven't read... even the one's I didn't WANT to read I did.

    ETA - just realized you guys have already started and I've been avoiding books since Christmas, so I better get going

    I've no idea how you can get through so many! I did four this month and that's a lot for me.

    I'm now into The Summer Book by Tove Jansson.

    Next book will be Less Than Zero by Brett Easton Ellis, but I don't think it fits in any of the remaining categories. It was given to me as a gift, and has been sitting on my bedside table waiting patiently.
