UPDATE @ 11:09 am on 06/13/2015: Happy Saturday everyone! Every once and a while I find myself at my local used bookstore searching for more books to add to my growing library. I happened to browsed a $1 books section to find A Heartbreaking Work of a Staggering Genius by Dave Eggers. Very ironic because it happened to be mentioned in my Books I Never Finish Reading video. I guess I wasn't the only one who lost interest in the book, but unlike them I still have it in my library.

Finishing the TBR catch up I started in May. This time around I placed a limit of how many books I am planing to read because I tend to over stack my TBR pile, and I end up pushing those books into the following month.
