I finally get back! I'm not going to list on here my "read this year" because I can't keep updating it every couple of days, and it's all listed, with comments, on my homepage forum (www.ladiesbehave.com)

I'm still working my way through those books I haven't read from the BBC top 100 list...(I know, it's old, and I've read loads of them already, but I like lists!)
The list, and what I've read
