Books In Waiting

It used to be alphabetical, and symetrical and aesthetcially beautiful. The books all flush, pulled towards the outer edge of the shelve and categorized by own volition, my own agenda, my own perogative. Now I have this overflowing mess, piles on top of piles, jammed in every which way and to be honest, I don't think it looks all that bad. It's not as functional but maybe its' the only way a pedants bookshelf should look. Anyway, here is a list of the books that are waiting, wide-eyed with expectation, putting on their best smile and tightening their tie (in the case of Cortazar's 62: A Model Kit) or wiping away the mud from their boots (in the case of Asturias' Men of Maize) to be picked in due time, parented, to be a part of the family.
