Kristen Is there a list of the book on the site? I just got a copy of the book from the library and am anxious to flip through it!

If you look in each topic the first thread of conversation has the list of books from that chapter. And somewhere there is a link with all the books listed.


message 12: by Christina (new)

Christina | 1 comments Long time reader, first time commenter. I really like that you have books divided into genres. That is helpful. It is also a relief to see some current books, not that the "classics" are all bad, but sometimes they are so tedious to try and get through. I look forward to exploring more books here, thanks!

message 17: by Sunflower (new)
