Lee Phew - need to stop fingers are hurting!


message 7: by Hilary (new)

Hilary | 2082 comments Good grief Lee, you must stop buying books immediately! I have decided I am only going to add one to my list on here when I can cross one off, I don't think I could bear to see them all written down in one place - they are easier to cope with quietly lurking in piles that I can ignore.


message 8: by Lee (new)

Lee I know, I know - my only excuse is that I live near to a really good charity book shop.

Not finished yet and I think I've got even more on my kindle (damn those kindle daily deals!!!) once I've got everything listed - I'm going to use the old randomizer and see if I can't read at least 2 a month.

Jenny (jeoblivion) Lee I am going to have to ask: are these the ones you already own or are these the ones that exist on a TBR list but are not in your possession yet?!! And may I mention that reading through your list is not really helping mine remain in handleable size (not that it's ever been really)!! ;) Great list!!
