Instead of the normal “top 5” lists that everyone seems to post about their favorite “must-read” books, I decided to write about my top five books that I must read but haven’t yet. It is not as simple as picking them up and reading them, however, since my bedside table is full of other great reads like I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell: Part 3 and Chelsea Handler’s new exciting book on travel.
If you are a voracious reader and love to discover new books as much as you like reading them, you’ll understand my predicament. There is only so much reading you can do in between hours of binge-watching Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, and Curiosity Stream (the latter added to appear worldly). That’s why I keep a “watchlist” of books that I want to read. I add it to my Amazon cart and update my Goodreads page, where it sits, marinating, waiting to feed my growing primate mind.
