Polls: A new feature of The Write Aspirations

I've added a poll to the blog that I'm excited about.  I will assume I am not alone among bibliophiles in that I acquire books at a faster rate than I can read them.  While this ensures that I never lack for something new to read, it can be like being at a restaurant with an intimidating menu full of choices when it comes time to pick what I'll read next.

In 2012, I would like to actually meet my ambitious goal of reading fifty books on top of my full-time job and blogging goals.  To do so I want to have a constant sense of what my next read will be. This way I can spend more time reading and less time debating what I should read.  I knew when I finished 11/22/63 that I would read The Godfather, but I failed to anticipate finishing The Godfather so quickly.  To prevent this from happening in the future, I've put a poll in my sidebar featuring four of the books currently on my "to-read" list.  I'll run the poll for about a week at a time.  Feel free to vote for your favorite.  If there's something you think I should be reading that isn't there, hit the comments below, mention it to me on Twitter, or recommend it to me via Goodreads!
