Loved your list! I have a very ambitious list too, and we share some books. I'm reading The Memory Keeper's Daughter right now, and ooooohhhh! It's so good!

I so need to make a list. That way when I finish a book I can cross it off. Then my husband couldn't tell me that my reading wasn't for anything. :) I LOVE to read! I think I might check out a few of your books too.

Great List, Susanne :) Thanks for dropping by! I don't think you will be disappointed with Charles Martin's books. I have a transcript of a telephone interview I did with Charles and my book club on my blog. It might be better to read When Crickets Cry first as there are some spoilers in there!

I have read or will be reading many of the same books on your list soon. It will be good to compare notes!

Seems like so much more than 30 books there! :)

I too want to read Pride & Prejudice...LOVED the (latest) movie...just bought it at Tar-Jay!

Gardenias for Breakfast by Robin Jones Gunn was so good & rather a quick read too. I had to read it for my bookclub (http://web.mac.com/obdigobin/iWeb/EarthenVesselsBookClub) & was pleasantly surprised.

Oh, & FYI...if your read A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer, you'll HAVE to read his other 2 books (Little Boy Lost & A Man Named Dave). They're worth the read!

Blessings...
