Another Book List

As you can see I like book lists.  Part of the reason is that right now I’m trying to put together a list of all the books I can remember reading, and this is a good way to remember some of them.  I got this list from Khanya’s blog while I was randomly browsing blogs.

    You have read Harry Potter? I know it’s not that uncommon but I am a huge fan of J.K.Rowling and was just wondering if you were too! p.s. I am the moderator of the new Blog Comments Train on Ravelry!

    Yeah, I’ve read it. I wouldn’t say that I’m a HUGE fan, but it was a fun series. My only major problem is the epilogue where J.K. Rowling introduces all of the “Harry Jrs.” Too me it was cheesey :/

    That’s a lot of books! I was surprised to see that I’ve read 28 of them eventhough I’m not a big fiction reader. I will say that I only read a couple of them by choice. High school English class took care of the rest!

    Your list is very impressive. I only wish I had time these days to pick up a book with my three kids running around. I am going to copy the list off to my daughter, she is in high school and loves to read. Good luck with all your reading. BTW, I am part of the “comment train” from Ravelry. 😉

    I surprised myself by having read 56 of the books on the list and I counted the series as one book. Granted, only 10 of them have been read since I strted my family 6 years ago! 🙂
