Top Ten Books I Just HAD to Buy…But Are Still Sitting on My Bookshelf | Top Ten Tuesday

(Thanks to Lindsi from Books, Sweets And Other Treats for the new button!)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers’ answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND post a comment on our post with a link to your Top Ten Tuesday post to share with us and all those who are participating. If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. 

If you can’t come up with ten, don’t worry about it—post as many as you can!


This week’s topic: 
Top Ten Books I Just HAD To Buy…But Are Still Sitting On My Bookshelf

We all have them.  That book that you needed to buy so badly and had every intention of reading it as soon as possible…but they’re still on your bookshelf collecting dust or sitting in a pile on the floor.

All of books were bought from some library’s Friends’ group. All collect dust on my shelf because I’m busy reading the books I check out said libraries before they’re due.
