WOW! What a list! I would rather read than do just about anything else, so I'll be checking these out asap. :o)
A friend gave me a whole boxful of English actors autobiographies that I started reading, simply because I was flat-out of reading material.
They were more interesting than I thought they would be, but I still need to get busy on Amazon - and get some good stuff. :o)

Have a Happy New Year, my friend!
*hugs*

Great list! We share some of the same books read.

Great list, I love to read too.. have you read any of Laurie R. King? If you love a good mystery I really suggest all of her stuff.. but if nothing, else read the Mary Russell series.. Start with the Beekeeper's Apprentice. And if you haven't learned the joy of listening to a good book while cooking, start with this one, the narrator of this series is flat out the best I've heard! Happy New Year Pam. I love your site!

I am impressed! That's quite a feat. Let's face it, there is nothing better than a book you just can't put down and can't wait to pick back up. Love to get lost in them!

Staci said...

Love your list, I've read quite a few of them. Thanks for adding the links!!

Paula said...

Oh, man! Gosh, this list is impressive! I like how you select books to read; it's a great way to read a variety of stuff. I'm totally hooked on cozy mysteries ... sad but true! Happy New Year! Looking forward to your book reviews!
