Each of these 12 books must have been on your bookshelf or “To Be Read” list for AT LEAST one full year.
One of the problems with my Shelf Maintenance scheme is that I started it at the end of 2015, which means books before then are getting left on the shelf, as it were. Only three titles from the list below are from 2016, the rest were acquired in 2015 or earlier. There’s a range of genres and formats; hopefully, I will always have something to satisfy my whims.
