The joy of reading lists?

06 Feb

After reading www.lilywight.com ‘s comment I’ve decided to create two reading lists so as to help me save time on choosing books later on in the year when I’m more stressed and less able to think straight.

Each list has 25 books so that I can read one from each list every fortnight and have time spare to read other books that I get distracted by. When I like an author I tend to get a bit obsessed with their work. Just a bit. 😉 Hopefully the wide variety of novels (and books of poetry) will make the lists even more interesting.

If I can’t get hold of one of the books mentioned here, I’ll go for another one by the same author… unless I can’t get hold of anything by them in which case I’ll wing it.

      I’m sorry! I’ve been drowning in assignments and revision for finals. More in a fortnight, I promise!
