Categorizing my upstairs To Be Read shelf

This process has shamed me somewhat.  I can’t believe I have this many books that I haven’t read – yet continue to spend money on new books.  This isn’t even a total list – I have more bookshelves downstairs that I haven’t looked at yet.  The one saving grace is that I only bought maybe half the books on the list – the rest are books borrowed from my parents.  Which is I suppose even worse – I wonder if they want them back?
