Rainbowheart Are you going to create the 2018 list soon? I already know of several titles to put on it.

Happy Holidays!

Because I was so late this year, I wasn't going to do one but several people have asked - so I will start one today.

Of course, I welcome and appreciate the titles that you will add.

Namaste
