You have no frigging idea how much I want to read Dostoevsky's books, but I made a pledge to read every single book I own before I go for anything else. But ****, do I need to read The Idiot or Crime and Punishment. I crave them. I'm impulsive like that: one day I'll want to read The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, I'll go to the store, pick it up, go home, read it, put it on the shelf and think about it. Now I crave Crime and Punishment the same way.

Sadly, people kept giving me books for a few years - books were suddenly available and for cheap, and people knew I liked them - so now I have a stack of something like 140 novels I haven't read yet. I'll need 3 years to tackle all these.
