The To Read List

 

With a couple of books finished and out of the way, it’s time to move along with the next book on the reading list. Currently, I’m reading a couple of books for online assignments, and after that, there’s a couple of more, which I haven’t started yet.

Now that I have a very portable computer, I decided to walk around the apartment and see exactly how long my To-Read list really is. And it’s pretty long…

  1. Wow that’s quite a list
    I just added Johannes Cabel: Necromancer to my list which is significantly shorter than yours…

    Mine is:
    Bite Me: A Love Story – Christopher Moore (just finished You Suck)
    Abraham Lincoln: Vampire hunter
    Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell
    Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal – C. Moore
    Johannes Cabel: Necromancer
    And I’m anxiously awaiting..
    I Shall Wear Midnight – Terry Pratchett

    Anyway, love the list and I just wanted to say you should bump Stardust up on the list. It’s a really quick read and a lot of fun.

    • I can’t recommend Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell highly enough – it’s a great fantasy read. I never got interested in AL:VH – I hate the premise, but I’ve heard good things about Christopher Moore.
