I love to read. Biographies are my favorite, but some historical novels are good too! Your list is awesome. If I had my way......nothing around the house would get done...only reading.

My T T is published

I'd like to read #9. That sounds like that could be very interesting - I used to be a waitress... oh the stories... Harry Potter is the only one I've read and waiting very impatiently for the final book to come out... I'd like to read The Great Gatsby sometime. :)

 
At 8:15 AM, Anonymous Nancy said...

As much as I like to read, I must really be behind! I only recognized two titles on your list: "The Great Gatsby" and "Harry Potter," both of which I've read.

Well, I'm way behind on Hemingway, so what would that tell you about my reading habits?!?

Mine are up!

 
At 9:04 AM, Blogger PresentStorm said...

this reminds me of how many books I am currently in the process of reading. I really should stop and finish one at a time..lol

 
At 9:15 AM, Blogger ivoryfrog said...

Happy Thursday!

Happy Thursday!

 
At 12:21 PM, Anonymous Caryn said...

Looks like we have similar taste in books! I actually haven't read many of the ones on your list (though I was an English major, so I read The Great Gatsby several times), but we like similar genres. That's nice to see!

 
At 12:30 PM, Blogger Joan said...

Any recommendations from this list. I have to spend my $86 credit at the used book store before we move!

 
At 12:31 PM, Blogger Joan said...

I should really make some time to read more.

=)

 
At 3:53 PM, Blogger Mom Nancy said...

They all sound good. I LOVE Harry Potter books, in fact I think I dreamed about them last night. The other books sound interesting. I read Gatsby in high school. I'm thinking of rereading some of those again, but my To Be Read pile is too big now!

My TT is up.

 
At 3:54 PM, Blogger Chana said...

My Danes would love your chihuahua..they love little dogs! Anyway, books...try "Angry Housewives Eating Bon-bons" by Lorna Landvik. Excellent book! Thanks for the book ideas by the way. My TT is up. If you have a linky that says *you*..it's me..it's taking a while to show my name.

 
At 3:58 PM, Anonymous Empress Juju said...

I read The Great Gatsby 10 years ago, and the Harry Potter book, but I've never heard of the others... time to expand the old horizons!

 
At 4:07 PM, Blogger Natsthename said...

I've heard that "Waiting" is really good! I'll have to try some of the others on your list. (Well, I read Gatsby in high school...many, many moons ago!)

Great 13! Mine is here:

Posted my very first TT today! Hi.

 
At 7:57 PM, Blogger Killired said...

Wow, you got a lot of visitors today, I got a late start to getting around to visiting the TTs for everyone. Those are some good books. I love the Harry Potter movies and I am sure the books are even better. My list is up!

 
At 11:32 PM, Blogger Wendy said...

I have a book list up as well, and none of your books are listed. I'll have to add them to my list.

 
At 3:23 AM, Blogger something blue said...

I can't get enough books. However I've always found it difficult to delve into two at the same time.

 
At 7:05 AM, Blogger The Red Queen said...

So you read more then one book at a time also. Thanks for stopping by. Sorry it took so long to get here but yesterday was like being a guest on Mr.Toads Wild Ride.

I'm a Harry Potter Addict! I love the series (books and movies). I bought book 6/Half-Blood Prince (latest) the day it was released and finished reading it a week after. LOL. I hope you get to read all 6 books. JK Rowling's amazing!

 
At 9:37 PM, Anonymous Carolyn said...

Love your books! I too loved Bergdorf Blondes...I'm a huge fan of mindless reading. In the midst of My Sister's Keeper right now, which is fabulous.
