State of the Stack (Nov. 26, 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 working on this post on Thanksgiving Day while waiting for dinner to cook. I hope to read a number of the remaining 2012 books during my Thanksgiving Vacation.

I just started Tears in Rain by Rosa Montero. I was sent this one by Wunderkind PR because they know I like science fiction.
