Climbing the mountain of TBR books

calico_reaction pointed me to the Mount TBR Reading Challenge 2012.

This is perfect for me. I have so many books lying around that I've been meaning to get to "someday." So I am taking up the challenge, and counting only books that I actually own, as physical print books, right now.

I am setting a modest goal of Mt. Vancouver (25 books), since I will still be doing my books1001 thing next year (we aren't even close to halfway done with the list yet), and of course I want to reserve some slots for books I haven't scheduled or been "assigned." But if I get all the way through my 25 books early, I may go for Mt. Ararat (40 books) as I'll still have dozens of unread books on my shelves.

So, here are the books that are actually, physically, literally in my TBR pile right now which I am going to read in 2012.
