this is a very good idea! I have had thoughts of doing it in the past, but never took action. You've inspired me to start my own list on a word doc. Thanks!

didn't you also read machete season?

Yes, I did - thanks! This is the problem with not staring this list in January - things are bound to be left off, especially when they're not on my bookshelf!

i'm having trouble with my list also- I know I am forgetting some things!

That is a really good idea! I will have to check my history at the library, because I know I have read quite a few this year, but didn't keep track. What a great idea!!

I think this is a great idea, and I can come steal books when I am in a dry spell. I just might have to start my own list, you have inspired me.
