Kristina's List

Woo hoo!! This sounds like my kind of challenge!! What I'm going to do is take a list of 100 books that I already own. I really need to learn that when I buy a book, I should read it and not just throw it on the pile =) So looking at my bookcase, I realize I have a lot of categories: multiple books by the same author, chunksters, biographies & self-helps, series books, and just those that I need to read. That's how I'm going to categorize! I will link them to reviews as I read them =)

Ohhhh. I love Mark Salzman's writing, and I think I've read everything besides "True Notebooks" which I didn't know existed. I've added this one to my (now one step closer to finished) list. Thanks, Kristina.
