Reading is FUNdamental

Since I’ve been reading so much lately, I’ve decided to throw together a list of the books I’ve recently read….I’ll say within the last couple of years or so.
I know that I started my renewed interest in reading when I decided to re-read the entire Tales of the City series in anticipation of the newest book being published, and that was in June of 2007...so that's when this all began.

I didn’t read them in this order, but since I put the list together mostly from memory, they’re grouped by author.
The ones in bold are the ones I REALLY liked and would highly recommend.
Feel free to make comments, make recommendation, ask questions, etc…..

This is mostly for my own benefit, but I thought it could possibly spark a conversation or two; or at the very least inspire folks to read something!!!

Have a great weekend…..xoxo

I love you neglected to post the 59 Danielle Steel books you consumed in one weekend. We don't keep secrets like that from blogger.
