State of the Stack (Oct. 29, 2012)

This is my monthly State of the Stack post. It is my way to keep track of my review books and to hopefully reduce the stack that I have waiting for me. I take a look at my review commitments on the last Monday of each month. Please feel free to join in and let me know the state of your stack.

Here is my Review Books Spreadsheet. Yellow highlighted books are ones past their publication date that I still haven't read and reviewed. I use pink highlights for reviews due in even numbered months so that I can see at a glance how many I have for each month. Ideally, this keeps me from over-committing to review books.

I Am Currently Reading

The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa

I feel like I am finally catching up on my review books. I had a huge number of them on my stack which were  being released in October but have only three left to read. I had a total of 23 that were released this month.

November and December have much more reasonable numbers. I am looking forward to actually reading a book I have bought.
