This list is from my handwritten scrawled list that I have been keeping since October 1997. ( so umm… many of the author names are misspelled) Mostly I use my list as a reminder of books that might be good for other people. Sometimes it helps me keep track of things. For example, I need to go back and figure out which was the last J.D. Robb book I read so I can catch up.

Interesting to note — only a few books are what I would call — contemporary fiction for adults. Mostly SF and fantasy,Lots Of YA and one or two books that are children’s books.
