I love to hear from you!  From the above list:
  • Which books have you read?
  • Which books do you want to read?
  • Which books are you going to obtain this week?(Even if you are not officially taking the Read More Books challenge I would love to hear about your reading.)

Note: I got permission to share this list on my blog. (Thank you, Stuart!) You could go HERE for the list of “623 of the best books ever written” and see them all at once for yourself, and/or you can follow the list here a few at a time.

There will not be a book list next week because on November 28 we get to read the next installment of Sue Harrison’s writers workshop. This gives us an extra week for reading until week 8’s book reading challenge on December 5.

Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! :)

  1. Hmm. Read One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich, started Treasure Island (twice), possibly read Hamlet in school, and saw movies of a couple others. Finished Far From the Madding Crowd (good book) and If I Have A Wicked Stepmother, Where is My Prince? (also good book); currently reading Room with a View.


    • You’re doing great, Faith! I have not made it all the way through Treasure Island, either, may have read part of Hamlet at some point, saw Les Miserables movie and tried to Watch Snow Falling on Cedars. I have a couple of Ken Follet’s books, one might be The Pillars of the Earth. (terrible I don’t know that)

      I am writing more than reading right now, and you will be pleased to know I have had a breakthrough in my novel .. moving forward in it. Yay!


  2. YAY!!!!! I’m waiting for that big finish.


  3. I want to read Hamlet. “To write, or not to write, that isn’t the question, because the answer EVERYONE knows is ‘To write.'” That’s how that line went, right? 😛


  4. I’ve read 16 from this list. I have to say Three Men in a Boat has to be one of the funniest books ever. I have read it a number of times and it still makes me laugh out loud everytime.Sophie’s World, by Jostein Gaarder is a great read. Another good list. So many books, so little time……


  5. If you enjoy British humour (like I do) you will love this little book. It’s a great pick-me-up when you are feeling down.


I look forward to reading your greatly appreciated comments. Thanks for making my day! :)
