That is one serious list of books...I wish you were my neighbor so I could check out some good reads from your personal library!

Whoa. You're intense. The only one I read from your list is Suite Francaise. I read that one last summer. I had forgotten about that until I saw your list.

Journey on! by Kelleye said...

Dust! That is what is on MY nightstand- dust!
Oooh I envy you who are able to read! Love your list!

Deb said...

Wow! How big is your nightstand? I love your ambition. Some of those very same books are one mine, but have been there so long I could write my name in the aforementioned dust!

Tess said...

Awesome list. Ive heard of some of these on other blogs too. Be sure to visit my blog to check out my contest!

Joelle said...

Awesome list! Similar to what mine might have been pre-kid :) Now (at the moment) I stick with fiction :)

Kathleen said...

Wow, you're really trying to blow through that international reading event!

I participated in this last year, but sadly, this year I only have a copy of "I Like You" by Amy Sedaris on my nightstand. I peruse it now and then when I'm trying to get to sleep. My husband goes to bed before me, which negates the luxury of reading in bed. Darned men.

Cant Hardly Wait said...

What a list. Let us know which ones you loved. I'm making a trip to the bookstoor here soon. =)

I LOVED seeing what is on your nightstand!

You've been such a busy blogger. Where did you publicize to get 800 entries for TS? WOW.

Minxy Mimi said...

You have a lot of good choices there and a few Ive not seen. I hope you get to read them soon!

Tiff said...

Wow, Jen, I'm impressed!
Looking forward to hearing a review on some of those if you have time.

I loved The Madonnas of Leningrad and The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox. I reviewed Madonnas here if it interests you:

and I am about to post a review of Esme Lennox this week.
You've got some good reading on your nightstand, enjoy.

wow... great list of books. I've heard a lot about The Madonnas of Leningrad, will wait for your review to see how good it is. Lipstick Jihad sounds good too.
