okay lesliereid,
what were your top 3 favorites in this list?

Aunt Jo said...

I share only one book with you. THe Secret Life of Bees.

Are these in chronological order? Do you keep a list all the time or only for blogger fodder? haha!!

I try never to choose favorites of anything but if my life depended on it, I would say Cancer Ward, Gilead, and The Way the Crow Flies. Not necessarily in that order.

Of course they're in chronological order!!! I'm my mother's daughter.

I keep a list on goodreads.com to remember what I've read. This week I started a book and read through the second chapter before realizing I read it several years ago, BL (before lists).
