Raved-about Reads

I like the sound of this challenge, hosted by MizB - it has its own blog, go have a look for yourself. The challenge is to read at least 3 books that everyone else is raving about. I'm going to treat this is a 'living' list of such books so I'm sure to read more than 3. Since it's ongoing, I'll put it in the project section.

What a great idea! :-)

Thanks for joining in on the challenge, Joanna! :D

I love that your list is alphabetized! Very cool! (I may have to go back and re-do my list, and put it in alphabetical order... that'd make it easier to find things, for sure!) :D

Thanks! :-) I'm such a nerd! :-) I'm planning on keeping this list long so it had to be organised in some way...
