This is how I'm going to resist requesting Netgalley books.


The books listed on this post are all in my possession, either on Kindle or in hard copy. I've been dying to read them, but they keep getting delayed for review obligations. So, I'm going to look at this list whenever I'm tempted to request more books. Then I'm going to read them. I don't know how long it will take, but these are all 'next' after my current reads.


Once I've done that, I can start reading all the other books on my Kindle, like the massive collection of free ones that I might just reject and clear up space. But at least if I decide to read them after all, they won't put anymore delays on the A-list.


There are a few more on the list than pictured above. I may have to write out a comprehensive list.
