Julie (julie_mackin) | 5 comments I've been attempting to get through the entire Fiction list for about five years now - though the reward of finishing those is to move on to the nonfiction list, so is that good motivation...

I've been reading a lot of the books based on their geographic location (usually because I am traveling to that destination) and that has been very fun.
