Books you really want to read but stinky life keeps getting in the way...

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I have a giant pile of books to read and some in particular I would love to sink my reading teeth into, but life keeps making me read other things...and do know.

Here's my list:

[B]The Reef, A Backwards Glance and The Buccaneers by Edith Wharton[/B]-She's one of my favourites and I'd love to read about her life, she knew Henry James and F.Scott Fitzgerald! Speaking of whom...

[B]The Collected Short Stories of F.Scott Fitzgerald[/B]-I just pick it up sometimes and hold it.

[B]Microserfs-Douglas Coupland[/B]-People keep talking about this! Stop it! I'm mixed about Douglas Coupland, I really enjoyed Girlfriend in a Coma and Hey Nostradamus but hated Shampoo Planet, I thought it was stupid, for want of a better word.

[B]In a Glass Darkly by Sheridan Le Fanu and The Collected Ghost Stories of M R James[/B]-I've always been a spooky story aficionado but recently I've been neglecting my old loves: the gothic and the grotesque! I want to make it clear I was never a goth, however.

So what are yours?
