Fifty-One Books…

Fifty-One Books…

Prompted by a trip to Book Nook (used book place around these parts), KLynne made a big-ass list of books that she owns but hasn’t read (at least ones here). Seeing her do that (and typing part of it up) inspired me to compose my own list. She did hers with the goal that she’s going to read all of them before buying another book (with one exception). I state no such goal because I know that I’m not gonna be able to stick with it. Anyway, here’s the list. Feel free to comment / mock / whatever. You always do (and on a side note, I use parentheses far too often).

  1. I’m actually reading it right now– that’s why it’s the last on my list. I promise that I’ll do a post as soon as I finish… but I can tell you right now that I’m already slightly annoyed by Isabella’s emo attitude about everything.
