Ann (annrumsey) | 14285 comments Wow, Carol! This is a work of art and so well organized. I love that we can see all of the nominations, alphabetical too. You are amazing! I could use this as a guide to reading for quite a long while, all recommended by our group, nice!
Mr Mercedes on top is nice too. I'll start another thread about some Mr Mercedes news I saw from Stephen King the other day.
Thank you!!

message 5: by Carol/Bonadie (new)

Carol/Bonadie (bonadie) | 7808 comments It was fun to do, and I've got a system now.

I found myself wanting to go back and comment/ask questions about what people had readc as I was doing it, but that would have distracted me so I didn't. Maybe I'll try to remember what my questions were now.

Carol/Bonadie (bonadie) | 7808 comments oh and on some of them people only put the title, so if the book wasn't familiar to me I looked it up in Amazon. Hope I got them all right!
