Stephanie | 2 comments A little late in getting my list together, but here goes! It's definitely subject to change, but my chances of sticking with it are better if I have a solid list from the start. Still having trouble with Q, X, and Y...

Thanks for the great idea, Kerri!

Carrie | 25 comments I just finished Anna Quindlen's How Reading Changed My Life ...I'd recommend it for a Q if you don't find another. (And she has a few novels, too.) I didn't realize when I put it on my list that it was a long essay rather than a full-length book, but it very eloquently spoke of how books fill an important place in life. I came away with even more books I want to read.

And I really liked My Name is Asher Lev and the follow up.

I still need P, X and Y.
