I don't think I'll ever really complete the list, but sounds like a fun challenge! I don't expect to go very quickly at this, but I do enjoy lists, and hopefully it will challenge me to read different types of books. So here goes!

Oh, and the * in front of it means that I own it, but haven't actually read it yet... I feel like listing it here might shame me into reading it sooner? Hard to say! (I tend to keep buying new books instead of reading the ones that I have... Oops!)

Yeah, I probably won't ever finish, either, but making the list is fun!
