what she is attempting to read

When I cleared out the bookshelves a few weeks ago, in addition to getting rid of a couple of hundred books (I think), I uncovered a solid pile of books I've purchased that need to be read, but always get pushed to the bottom of the priority list because, well, there's no late fees if I don't. A couple are borrowed, but most aren't. Since most of these are a little more enriching than relaxing, it doesn't take much for me to get distracted by a new novel or suggestion. I know. I fail. But really? I'm seriously working on these.
From the top, literally.
::the girl with the dragon tattoo:: I CANNOT get into this. I know. I fail. May cave and watch the (swedish) movie so I can move on to the rest of the trilogy.
::bloodsworth:: On loan from a sister. About a guy acquitted by DNA. (I think.)
::interpreter of maladies:: By the same author as The Namesake. Which is why I picked it up.
::manic:: On loan from a different sister. A memoir of being manic-depressive.
::the reluctant fundamentalist:: I think this was one I thought I should read. Still haven't.
::reviving ophelia:: Suggested by one of my sisters.
::motherless daughters:: Have started this one, learned a lot, but it's kinda depressing to read. Really need to, though.
::7 habits of highly successful people:: I KNOW. Have never read the whole thing. Need to be more effective, hence...yeah. About that.
::the boy who harnessed the wind:: On loan from a customer at work. Excited about this one.

What's on your reading pile?

Actually, Manic and Bloodsworth are both mine. The interesting thing about the Bloodsworth book was that he was a local guy who was accused of raping and murdering a nine-year old girl in Cambridge.
