Me and the top 100 books on Library Things

Removed to the Blog Dusty-box


  1. I love the color coding! My eyes went straight for "When Hell Freezes Over"! So are there any that you've not read nor own, and isn't waiting for freak whether occurances in the Dark Prince's Abode?

  2. Waves at thekoolaidmom, no I do or have owned all of them!

  3. Love the colors - makes it easier to follow than just bold/italics.

    I definitely am with you on Life of Pi, but is there some reason you're not interested in Angels and Demons? I'm just curious because I thought it was considerably better than The Da Vinci Code.

  4. Oh wow, aren't you the creative one! I love the color! :)

  5. "When hell freezes over 5"

    LOLOLOL! Love it!

  6. whoa! And I thought I had a lot of books!

  7. Waves @ everyone.

    I read the De Vinci code for the plot and the mad ideas but the prose and style was wooden. The idea of reading any other, as American students said in the 60's,would make me ride the porcelain bus!

  8. Any reason for the 'hell freezes over'? Something against Dickens and Alcott?

  9. waves@kbookreviews yes can safety safe along with Hardy I fall asleep with all that 19th century slow unfolding. I do like TV adaptions of them because then the plot and characters stand out

  10. that's pretty impressive :-)

  11. I'm sure you had a few other choice comments about some of the unread and read but regretted, no?

  12. I love what you did with this! Thanks for the laugh with the "when hell freezes over" category. I just may have to do mine all over again.

  13. Love the colors! I don't blame you for staying far away from more Dan Brown, I felt much the same after reading the Da Vinci Code. Shame about those Victorian authors, though, I love them so much! I've also read The Canterbury Tales in the original Middle English, they're much better that way. =)

  14. The color coding is great. And I definitely agree about Dickens - he's on my "when hell freezes" list, too. I had to read him in school, but vowed never again!

  15. waves @ everyone and yes I have been known to hold back no punches on certain books, The Alchemist springs to mind as the worst type of New Age Twaddle.

    I do like Victorian novelists for example this lot

    Burnett, Frances Hodgson
    Carroll, Lewis
    Collins, Wilkie
    Doyle, Sir Arthur Conan
    Conrad, Joseph
    Cooper, James F
    Dostoevski, Fedor
    Eliot, George
    Flaubert, Gustave
    Gaskell, Elizabeth
    Gogol, Nikolai
    Hugo, Victor
    James, Henry
    Stevenson, Robert L
    Thackeray, William M
    Tolstoy, Leo
    Trollope, Anthony
    Turgenev, Ivan
    Twain, Mark
    Verne, Jules
    Wells, HG
    Wilde, Oscar
    Zola, Emile

  16. Your colour coding is terrific it really makes it so much more personal.
    I totally agree with your "Hell Freezes Over" category for Memoirs of a Geisha, sadly I got conned into reading it before I found this out lol.

  17. I have a co-worker that would be so excited about your color coding. =) I just want to mention that you should totally add Huck Finn to your "when hell freezes over" list - I'm serious. It's not fun.

  18. Persuasion and Sense and Sensibility have been on my shelf for a long time. I would like to get to them this year.

    I would read Love in a Time of Cholera before 100 Years. :)
