I don't have a list, but I'm gradually working my way through the unread ones on my bookshelf. I'm currently alternating between three books:

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
The Lost Book of Salem
A Brief History of Tractors in Ukrainian

All completely random and not similar at all, which I love!

Wow, you've read a lot of books off of your list! Well done!

Right now I am reading "The Happiness Project" and I am really liking it! I am not sure what I will be reading next!

Sense and Sensibility and SEA MONSTERS!

And Jen said you should def read The Poisonwood Bible.

I love the feeling of finishing a new book. You're making great headway on your list.

I have been on an autobiography kick reading Julie Andrews' "Home," Carol Burnett's "This Time Together," and am almost finished with Laura Bush's "Spoken from the Heart." I really liked the first two, the Bush one is so/so.

I'm slogging through Salman Rushdie and have concluded that fame does not equal talent. Ugh.

I am almost done with "Little Bee", which I have LOVED and have been wanting to read The Elegance of the Hedgehog, but I've heard mixed reviews.

Sense and Sensibility is my favorite of all of Jane Austen's books. It's WONDERFUL. The Poisonwood Bible is one of my favorites, too. I highly recommend both of those books!

P.S. I tagged you for a little game on my blog today! http://seattlestevie.blogspot.com :-)

Wow you are a busy bee! Or shall I say, bookworm! I tend to go for those light and breezy chick lit type books. I can't wait to start "cocktails for three" by madeleine wickham!
