I'm not finished yet

I love reading books, but I have a bad habit of not finishing them. I read very slowly, underlining and making notes to digest what I am reading. But before I finish a book, I often come across another book and begin it. So there are many books (maybe half of the ones on my shelf that I have completed) that I have yet to finish, but all of them are books that I would like to finish.

To give you an idea, I have compiled a list for you (in no particular order). I have not included books that would not normally be completely read, such as reference books, text books, or collections of essays and other compilation .

Thanks for this post. I found a few I want to pick up, especially Henry VIII on the Sacraments.
