Annie | 201 comments Since I'm already reading from the 1001 Books list, I thought I'd join this challenge as well. I'll keep two lists: one for the novels finished after Jan 1, 2012, and another one for my lifetime 1001 list. I've also included US states, English counties and the new categories (fictional, space, air, water, etc). Thanks for the challenge!
