I must admit I don't know how to underline in blogger. I own Time Traveler's Wife, All six Harry Potter books, and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I get most of my books from the library. I don't see a reason to NOT read any of the books on the list. It's a bit embarrasing how many I do not recognize.

I'm tagging Brandi. I'll bet she has read most of the books on the list.

In Knitting News I just got off the phone to order the Flower Basket Shawl pattern. I'm very excited. Branching Out take Two is going really well. I'm feeling ready to tackle the FBS pattern. I'm thinking of knitting it in Socks that Rock Ruby Slippers. Such knitting excitment!

I accepted your tag. Thanks because it gave me the push I needed to finally write something for BookADay again.

I've read 28. I want to read all those I haven't.
