Nicholas | 27 comments As a newbie, I was wondering if you guys have a list somewhere of all the books that you've previously read? I didn't see any easy way to tell (other than paging back though the discussion threads or the website). I was hoping I could find a list though, for two reasons. One, there's probably a lot of great books to add to my to-read list in there; and two, I'd rather not waste anyone's time suggesting books you've already read in suggestion threads! Thanks for the help.

Jill Thanks for that list Tassie Dave - as a naturally lazy person I always appreciate someone going to so much effort when I benefit :)

Nicholas | 27 comments Tassie Dave: you're awesome. But I think my to-read list just got unmanageable. Again.
