I don't think starting a book counts, but you're better off without reading Joyce, IMO. Ack.

I took the list. I've only read 29 of the books and probably have a dozen of the others I'd like to read. Odd list. (Thirty-three if you count the four books I've read parts of but never finished.)

I'm with you. I wonder who put it together.

Thanks, this was fun. =)

Great Jess, I'll pop and see how you have done. I did better than I thought I have to confess there were many I had never heard of!

I've seen this mememememe a couple of times now and it confuses me. I am easily confused though.
It makes no sense to me, apart from the conclusion that you like to read and you like books. Fabulous!

Yes, Caoline I do like to read but don't read as much now as I did in the past. When I am in full writing mode I am too tired at night. In my mispent youth I read and as I did my degree in Eng. Lit. I ead and read. Then motherhood stole my time and energy and I read very little when the kids wee ealy young. A few years ago I had a reading epithany and began again but find I am much slower and much more finicky :-)
