the list


How cool would it be to have a gigantic library in your house like in Beauty and the Beast, where there are ladders to climb and endless books to read. i want one.

Lately i just want to read, lots, but don't have that much time at least not for another 4 weeks and then I can get started on my list of books I want to read. It keeps growing faster than I can read them, but one day I will.

Ha. I tried to read Victor Hugo before....as much as i love the story of Les Mis, I just couldn't get through the book...I've read Dracula and Macbeth. Frankenstein is better than Dracula in my opinion...and Macbeth is fun to dissect. I really think you should read Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close...You'll love Oskar.

Excellent list! Sense and Sensibility is really good, so is MacBeth, and The Chronicles of Narnia. You also need to read the Confessions of Georgia Nicholson. You will laugh your head off.
