This week's TTT topic, as set forth by That Artsy Reader Girl, is: Top Ten Books That Have Been on my To-Read List the Longest.
I got a little spiral-bound book about the time I graduated from college that I used to keep track of all the books I wanted to read. Before that, I'd had my list on scraps of paper and in my head, but that was the first time I jotted them down in one spot. That book looked just like this one:

I still have that book, being a good little pack-rat, so here are the first ten books in it that I have not yet read:
Death Comes to the Archbishop
by Willa Cather
From Here to Eternity
by James Jones
by Kent Haruf
The Complete Idiot's Guide to Private Investigating
by Steve Brown
Never Accept Candy from Strangers Unless They Let You Ride in Their Car
by Lawrence Russell
Jonathon Strange and Mr. Norrell
by Susanna Clarke
by James Muirden
The Scarlet Pimpernel
by Baroness Orczy
by Leo Tolstoy
by William Kerrigan
I still have hopes of reading all of these some day! Especially Death Comes to the Archbishop and The Scarlet Pimpernel -- I even own copies of those, so really hoping to get to them sooner rather than later.
That's it for this edition of Top Ten Tuesday. Tell me, have you read any of these? Are any of them on your own TBR list? Did you do a TTT post this week?
