I've read about half the books on this list, which isn't bad, considering the amount of recent titles on there that are not science fiction or fantasy. I'm not big on contemporary literature -- I prefer the classics, especially 19th century literature. My favorite, "Jane Eyre", was on the list, but only one of Jane Austen's books -- yet Rowling's Harry Potter books showed up three times!

I included Gaiman's "American Gods" in my "read" category, but I haven't finished it yet. I expect to be done with it soon though, so as far as I'm concerned it counts for the purpose of this meme.
Current Mood: nerdynerdy
Current Music: "The Library" -- Harry Potter & the SS soundtrack
