Remember I told you that there were a lot of bloggers in the mix this time.  Well, I was right.  Booking Mama had 4 entries, but 8 others had 2 recommendations on this list. That's a lot of sharing of the wealth.

This leaves me only 4 to start the weekend.  We'll see how the list progresses.


  1. A lot of those books are on my wish list too!

  2. It's overwhelming! It seems like reading 65-70 books per year would be a lot. But it leaves me woefully short of so many highly recommended books.
