  1. Great list. I've enjoyed several on your list. Here is mine:

  2. You've got some great books on here. Gone with the Wind - ah yes! =) Fun reading your list!

  3. I agree with the Twilight book 1 only. As the series went on, I found myself disliking it more and more.

  4. I'm looking at The Poisonwood Bible on my shelf and thinking that I should pick it up next.

  5. Little House is good and I hope to get to The Other Boyelyn Girl this year.

  6. I've read and enjoyed 6 of the books on your list, especially The Hot Zone! That was great. A Long Way Gone is on my shelf patiently waiting to be read. I find it funny that after Twilight you made sure to say Book 1 only lol

  7. Thanks for visiting me today. I noticed I got several comments from people who forgot about the Thorn Birds. It is sitting on my bookshelf. I noticed on my way back from the bathroom and that reminded me I had read that one already. A long time ago though. And I watched the movie of it also.

  8. Great list! I have several of the books on your list on my wish list :)

    I'm not quite sure why I didn't put up A Thousand Splendid Suns on my list.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  9. Hi Jenny! I appreciate your comment on my unschooling blog, and I have been thoroughly enjoying *your* blog. I have a book to send you, if you don't mind sending me your postal address. Thanks!
