Stephanie's List.....Finally!

OK. I've been slacking! I didn't have a clue which books I wanted to read. There are SO MANY good ones to choose from. So I made a list....and come down to 30! Since there is NO WAY I'd get through 30, I whittled down to 15 (with a couple of alternates! we go!

    Hi, Stephanie!

    Jonathan Strange was looong but great. I takes about 80 or so pages to "get going, though.

    Stephanie, I adored Possession! I can't wait to read what you think.
