I blame Rod Serling. There was an episode of the Twilight Zone that marked my need for books for life. I'm not letting the end of the world find me under-read or book deprived. No siree, I've got my pile of books and there will always room for one more.
I found a blog that shares my pain on not getting to every book I lay eyes on. Too Many Books, So Little Time give brief opinions and reviews of books. I can get a glimmer of what is out there and make notes to keep an look-out for the new goodies that are being published.
P.S. Beware of blog posting at 4:30am. You are not at awake as you think you are.
