message 1: by Andrew (new)

Andrew I voted for (or tried to add) "The Living" by Annie Dillard. It's a wonderful book about the NW. I hope everyone who has added to this book list takes the time to read it.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads GR says you voted for it; sometimes it takes a minute to show up on the list when you add a book.


message 3: by Moira (new)

Moira Russell ....why is Hunter S. Thompson on this list?


message 4: by Tima (last edited Jul 31, 2012 10:09PM) (new)

Tima Love the list! Never heard Northern CA or BC be considered the NW (and only rarely heard Idaho lumped in, but that one is more common). Very good list of books so far though

ETA: I don't know why a Librarian came in and updated the list name 4 years after it had been created and she wasn't the list creator. I wonder if the description always included the additional states; as the tags only have OR & WA listed.


message 5: by Autumn (new)

Autumn Smith Wildwood is simply great from ages 8 to 88. Interesting, quirky, and mystical.
