Jessica's bookshelf: to-read
Following the Whispers - Creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair
“I'm using my art to comment on what I see. You don't have to agree with it.” ~John Mellencamp
“Allowing an unimportant mistake to pass without comment is a wonderful social grace” ~Judith S. Marin
“I don't ever try to make a serious social comment.” ~Paul McCartney
“I'd make a comment at a meeting and nobody would even acknowledge me. Then some man would say the same thing and they'd all nod.” ~Charlotte Bunch
“Probably what my comment meant was that I don't care about the circumstances if I can tell the truth.” ~Sally Kirkland
“We're not going to pay attention to the silliness and the petty comments. And quite frankly, women have joined me in this effort, and so it's not about appearances. It's about effectiveness.” ~Katherine Harris
Wow! That's a hell of a list! It makes me feel bad about the lonely books on my to read shelf that are crying out to be read too, hehe. Good luck getting through them all! I've probably got about the same amount on my list, but I'm leaving them for a little while so I can get through the books for the Indie Lit Awards. It's gonna be one hell o a Christmas!ReplyDelete
Whoa! Snaps for the awesome line-up. All great titles! I love that A Year in Provence is there, since I sent it to you :)) You should slip that in after one of the Wolfe or Dickens books. It's a quick read with lighthearted humor, which you can guzzle after sipping and savoring the literary brilliance in the other books.ReplyDelete
My to-read list is getting shorter, but I will not make my personal 2010 Reading Challenge goal of 50 books. I'm in the last quarter of #32 now...
Nice list! My TBR list is out of hand too. So many good books, so little time!ReplyDelete
Last week I posted my to-read Kindle list; it had 64 titles. Luckily, most of those are samples, so if I don't like one, I'm not committed to finishing it. But I also have about twenty paper books to read too.ReplyDelete
Nice. That's a lot of classics! I've even read some of them, but not many.ReplyDelete
WOW. That's quite a list. I'm not sure what's next for me...I just go browsing our bookshelves and see what pops out at me. There are probably a hundred I haven't read yet.ReplyDelete
So? While you're unplugged, are you reading?ReplyDelete
Oh. My. God. I can't even tell you how surreal it is to see The Liar Society on your list!!! CRAZY! Thanks for being so supportive! XOXOReplyDelete
I would overload your comment box if I tried to list them all...ReplyDelete
Wow, I'd be feeling overwhelmed too. Just think one at a time and you'll be fine. Start with the Virginia Woolf.ReplyDelete
I currently have 17 on my TBR list and it keeps growing too.ReplyDelete
Look at this sexy line-up! I love to see what you're into. Thanks for the visual.ReplyDelete
PS - This was not meant to sound dirty... sorry.
I have quite the TBR list myself and come Christmas the list will only get larger!
Nice list! I admit, I read few classics a year but there's a few in your TBR pile I'd take a look at and some I've even read :-)ReplyDelete
Your list is ambitious. I have about five for now and three I would like to get to soon.ReplyDelete
My list could rival yours! Now it is even longer....so many books on your list that are only now being added to mine. Do I thank you....Oh okay...Thank you!ReplyDelete
Boy, I have a long list but not that long!ReplyDelete
Enjoy! I have read four from your list and you won't be disappointed.
I've read the first two... want cliff notes? Actually, 100 Years of Solitude I liked but if you've read Love in the Time of Cholera, I think it is a duplication of experience... so read it if you haven't, but not if you have. A Tale of Two Cities is a great story, though I was young when I read it, so DIFFICULT. (I couldn't manage Dickens until I was in my 20s)ReplyDelete
Those are a lot of books!ReplyDelete
Hey, there's my book! Thank you.ReplyDelete
I have about five on my list.
I've read one of those, but my TBR pile is so huge, it constitutes a whole bookshelf now.ReplyDelete
Holy Library Cart, Bat Man! Geez Jess, get those books open girl! I can't talk much... my list is super long and I lack the books... Oh well. Eventually.ReplyDelete
Hee hee! Mine's in four piles by my bed. Four teetering piles...ReplyDelete
Read Marilynne Robinson first! [g]
lol, your list looks a lot like mine! What I wouldn't give to have a few more hours each day. ;)ReplyDelete
Wow Jessica there is a list. I like reading but don't read as often as I should, perhaps a new year resolution........ReplyDelete
Happy New Year to you.
Ya know, I hear the author of Max and Menna has been known to send flowers when you bump that title a little higher on the list ;)ReplyDelete
How many did you get through?
