message 7: by Peggy, Moderator (new)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 14593 comments I can see you won't feel bored in 2016 Janice!


message 8: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 47164 comments There's roughly 300 books on that list. Considering I read 125 this year, I doubt I'll be crossing too many off in 2016, and will likely add more.

I look at it as a retirement plan. I won't have to buy more books, and will have lots to do. I say that half in jest.


message 9: by Peggy, Moderator (new)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 14593 comments You know you will be buying more books despite all the ones you already own, don't you? ;-)


message 10: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 47164 comments Of course. :) I'm addicted.


message 11: by Cherie (last edited Dec 09, 2015 08:53PM) (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 19580 comments OMG! How many hours did it take you to post all of the links, let alone compile the list? Are your print books posted in reading order? You haven't read any of them (like the Lord of the Ring books? LOTS of 1st in Series there... I am not counting my list!


message 12: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 47164 comments I copied and pasted them from my 2015 lists which I kept up to date with new additions, so it didn't take me long at all. It was a different matter last year at this time.

I intend on reading them in the order they are listed, though the various challenges and group reads will likely bump some up to the top of the list before their time.

I read TLoTR's years ago when I was a young adult, but I just bought them in a boxed set and want to read them again.

Yes, lots of firsts in a series. *sigh*


message 13: by Lilisa (new)

Lilisa | 2383 comments Goodness, looks like you've got your year cut out for you. Do you shelve your print books all in one area or scattered about your place?


message 14: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 47164 comments Most of my "print books" are ebooks. I have a couple of overflowing bookshelves to house my paperbacks and hardcovers.

Janice (jamasc) | 47164 comments I finished Monster Hunter International, which is book 1 in the Monster Hunter International series. I didn't enjoy it enough to continue the series, so I've taken it off my list.


message 21: by Peggy, Moderator (new)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 14593 comments That is a lot of series Janice!


message 22: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 47164 comments And I've just started a couple more that aren't on those lists. At least I don't think they are: Jurassic Park and Red Dragon. There's no hope.


message 23: by Cherie (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 19580 comments Yeah, JP is on your audio book list. I see you marked it as reading. I just started. I got to the newborn baby and decided I need to go to sleep.

I noticed that you have Dodger by Terry P on that list. I have it in print. Looking forward to it.


message 24: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 47164 comments You're right Jurassic Park is on my lists. I was confusing myself with Harry Potter. I had just finished listening to the library's audiobook so it wasn't on my list.

I have read 6 books in January and 3 of them were library books. I'll have a hard time crossing books off my owned lists at this rate.

It will be a while before I get to Dodger. This will be my 3rd Pratchett and I didn't care for the first 2. Hopefully 3's the charm.


message 25: by Cherie (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 19580 comments Pratchett definitely requires a suspension of beliefs for most people (and Discworld especially). He can be slow and unfunny when you are looking for humor and action, but when all of the planets align and he is great. I have my fingers crossed for Dodger!


message 26: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 47164 comments I want to like him which is why I keep trying.


message 27: by Cherie (new)

Cherie (crobins0) | 19580 comments I thought his Long Earth series was an interesting concept. He co-wrote them and the co-writer is continuing, since TP passed away. There were parts that were very cool, but felt bogged down in many places to me. There is an AI and a human genetic shift occurring in the story line too. I believe aliens are going to show up in the next one. I have it on hand, but not sure when I will get to it.

I am over extended again. I've started so many books...


message 28: by Janice, Moderator (new)

Janice (jamasc) | 47164 comments While I was setting up my office, I was going through some old things that had been stuffed away. I found a wish list I had made around 1996. It's a LOT shorter than my wish list shelf here on Goodreads.

Just for fits and giggles, here it is:

*The Daughter of Time
Energy And Personal Power
The Seven Mysteries of Life: An Exploration of Science and Philosophy
Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas
Trail of the Spanish Bit
Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives
Deryni Rising
Would You Believe?
Women's Psychic Lives
**Lucifer's Hammer
Justine
The Dance of Anger: A Woman's Guide to Changing the Patterns of Intimate Relationships
The White Goddess: A Historical Grammar of Poetic Myth

* started to read just last month, but dnf.
** read a long time ago.

Most of these are not on my goodreads wishlist. I may have to add some of them back in.
