I think that I will do it - at first I thought it would be the exact same as yous but it will be a little different. My all time favorite book is on that list (Kane and Abel by Jeffrey Archer)- as well as a few I'm not sure I would like to admit that I have read (the World According to Garp).

shell said...

okay I know I'm a tard but what in the H is a meme? is it just a "cooler" way to say tag?

Kelly said...

Jolene,I should read Kane and Abel!

Shell, I don't know what the H a meme is. I didn't make it up, though. Somebody else can take the blame for that.

Pam said...

You have read a lot of books girl. Is there a grade worse than an F because that would be me. Unless of course watching the movies of the books counts then maybe I could get a D-. I guess I'd better start reading more of the classics and not all my fluffy romances so I can be smart like you.

Kelly said...

Pam, most of these are NOT classics. In fact, they were a waste of my time.

Brett & Shireen said...

I got 53 - I know, I'm as shocked as you are that I've read that many! This is a good list but there are several I haven't heard of. I posted mine if you want to check them out. Brett has read several that I don't get to bold - between the two of us I think we might have been a mid D.

One Sassy Mama said...

Ummm - I think I just scored an F minus -- possibly even an G plus.

Kari said...

No. Shan't. Can't possibly imagine what goo d would come of exposing myself and my wildly horrible reading habits.

I would, however, like to read HP and the Philosoper's Stone--is that one new?

Jill said...

I thought 51 books was fabulous! I only read 7 books on your list. I was feeling pretty good about 7 books. Oh well.

Kelly said...

So, Shireen has the highest grade so far. I think we should grade on the curve so we all feel smarter. All in favor?

Kari, I think the Sorcerer's stone was published under "philosopher's stone" in UK. Don't know why. Probly had to take out all the anti-yank rhetoric.

I only had 33, but I had like 6 halfs, so do those count? Can I put them together and make my total 36?
