  1. Thanks for adding me to your list :) There's some really great stuff on your TBR, loved Life of Pi and of course Fantastic Mr Fox was always a favourite.

  2. Awesome, thanks for adding me to your list Michelle.

    You have some great books here. I have wanted to read Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell for way too long but somehow I never get around to it. I'm adding it to my "books to read before I die" list.

  3. Get to "Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell" as fast as you can. It is my all-time favorite book and I actually cried when it was over because I didnt want it to end. "Possession" is also a real tear-jerker but a beautiful book as well. I'm going to add your site to my blog following too. Good luck as you read them all...I will check in :)Pam

  4. Everyone -- thanks for comments and encouragement to keep reading. I needed that!

  5. ...and OMG, my other favorite book besides "Strange and Norrell" is on your list too. You will LOVE "A Short History of Nearly Everything". I have re-read it about ten times. :) You will also love "High Fidelity". It is so apropos with us list-people!! :)
