In a locked post, one of my friends suggested that instead of or in addition to the meme about the books most purchased and left unread on Library Thing, she would like to know what we have purchased and left unread. I'm not going to do an exhaustive (and exhausting!) list, but here's a sampling:

Scott Westerfeld, Specials
Robin McKinley, Dragonhaven
Michael Chabon, The Yiddish Policemen's Union
Edward Teller, Memoirs
Istvan Deak, The Lawful Revolution: Louis Kossuth and the Hungarians, 1848-1849
Peter Hoeg, The Quiet Girl
Parke Godwin, Waiting for the Galactic Bus
Brandon Sanderson, Mistborn

And here's what I haven't bought but hope to read soon anyway, courtesy of friends or the public library:
Barbara Goldsmith, Other Powers: The Age of Suffrage, Spiritualism, and the Scandalous Victoria Woodhull
Melvyn Dubofsky and Foster Rhea Dulles, Labor in America: A History
Everett Webber, Escape to Utopia: The Communal Movement in America
Carl Ross, The Finn Factor (In American Labor, Culture, and Society)
James D. Horan, The Pinkertons: The Detective Dynasty That Made History

How about you? What have you bought or borrowed but not read yet?

ETA: timprov points out that some of these were gifts or other people's purchases. True enough, but they're still on my to-read piles.
