I've never been big on rereading books, though I have, not realizing it for many chapters.


  1. I agree, what a list! A lot of my favorite books. My all time farvorite is "A Prayer for Owen Meany" by John Irving. I've read it so many times.

  2. toni,deb & sandra- I've read so many more (The Journeyer by Jennings is my all time favorite that I would read over and over but it wasn't on the meme), love Koontz, JA Jance, some Wilbur Smith and The Thomas Covenant octuplet?(8 books), Ann Rule, on and on and on.

  3. deb- have read some John Irving not sure about that one but will check it out.

  4. Wow! 61 books by my count - that's amazing.

  5. great list! I added it to my blog.

  6. It's funny how often I've seen A Prayer for Owen Meany listed on people's favorite books lists. I'm going to have to go and look that one up.

  7. you should read the time travelers's amazing.

    and this is quite a list.

  8. I did read and love A Fine Balance but didn't indicate so on my list. Went to the library tonight and checked out "A Prayer for Owen Meany" and have started reading it. Also "Angels and Demons" but no copies of "The Time Travelers Wife" were in.

    You all seem impressed that I have read 62 of the books on the list, but I'm sure that's not even a small dent in the books I've read and loved. I've read all I could find of so many of my favorite authors. And the more pages the better.

  9. This is a great meme. I will have to do it...Hmmm..

    *I wanted to say THANK YOU for taking the time to read through my blog. It is very sweet. And it is kinda nice to know someone would still go back and read some things that were sometimes hard for me to write and post. So, thanks. ;)

    Nice to "meet you"


  10. Amber- I wouldn't have taken the time to read your whole blog if it weren't such a wonderful read. So, thank you!


A pony for your thoughts.
