Kathy  (readr4ever) | 312 comments I'm reposting my list, as I left out a book. That's the 2nd book I found while listing that I'd left out of my little reading journal I keep. Gee, I'm slipping. So, I'm adding Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist to the bottom, which will make me reach 70 by year's end. Yay!
