Currently reading Ready Player One and Foundations Trilogy. Only a couple books I refuse to read and want to give quite a few more a solid go so I don't intend to count any not read or reread this year.

Hello Rebecca, and welcome to the Great American Read List group! Thank you for creating a personal bookshelf and also for joining our group challenge with a goal of 10 books!

What did you think of The Wheel of Time series? I've had my eye on those fantasy books for awhile, but haven't gotten around to reading them yet.
Also, thank you for listing Brandon Sanderson as co-author. I'd forgotten that he wrote the last three novels after Robert Jordan passed away. I've corrected that in our group list.
