One thought on “65 Books On My ‘To Read’ List

  1. loved little women; have to get Nathan’s book back to you, will put it in the mail soon. it was fantastic. though i love Barbara Kingsolver, the poisonwood bible was AWFUL in my opinion. forced myself to finish it but hated it very much. The five people you meet in heaven was really good. love some of the titles; SUcking Sherbert Lemons, Mennonite in a little black dress, crazy rich asians. makes me feel like reading them too!
