Form a habit by always reading at the same time every day or after some sort of trigger (e.g., always read right after a shower, after lunch, with your first pot of coffee). Slot yourself a half hour each day (or more if you really want to make a dent in that need-to-read pile in a year, but 30 mins will do for a lifetime habit).

Now go to your shelves, see if you own Blood Meridian. If not, go to the library or a bookstore and get a copy. It’s Cormac McCarthy’s masterpiece, and I’m certain you will enjoy it.
