Book List

Book List

BBC Book List
Apparently the BBC reckons most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here.
Instructions:
1) Look at the list and make those you have read bold.
2) Star (*) the ones you LOVE.
3) Italicize those you plan on reading

Ohk I an slightly appalled at myself! I pride myself on having read a variety of books but I realise how little I have actually read. I tend towards fantasy of course which isn't represented much on this list. But that is no excuse.

I'm starting a book review page and I am going to make a vow to start reading a lot of books I have never read.

My parents have gone through their books and over half of the books in their bookcase I haven't read. So at least once a month I am going to have a book review of a book I have never read before. It will be good for me. I'm halfway through a new book at the moment. So when I'm done I will post a review.
