Book List

I grabbed this from Breeder Beware.

Here are the instructions:
1) Look at the list and put an 'X' (and bold) after those you have read.
2) Add a '+' to the ones you LOVE.
3) Star/Asterisk (*) those you plan on reading.
4) Put a # (and italics) by those you've started but not finished.
5) Tally your total at the bottom.


I of course did not follow the directions. You know I am not that handy with the computer. You'll just have to read my comments, or not.

Try Katherine Neville. She wrote The Fire and something else. Mr. loves Dan Brown and said Katherine Neville was the best book he read last year. She has two.
