Lists of books to choose from
We could go at our book choices from another angle; rather than deciding on a CATEGORY of books, let's see what KINDS of books people enjoy reading and discussing. If you want to share a link to YOUR list of books, tell me in the comments and I'll link them here.
Here's one place to look at all sorts of books, though they are all what Bonnie has been reading. Click this blog title to go see: Bonnie Reviews Books. To learn more about a book, click on any title ... it's a link that will take you to my review of the book.
You are welcome to go and have a look at my blog http://sally906.blogspot.com/ and from there is a link to librarything which has my TBR pile :)

If you got to my blog you can see on the left hand side of my blog all the books I have read this year. There are also two tabs at the top with most of the books I read in 2005 and all the books I read in 2006. My nickname on librarything is Kailana.

[Bonnie added: Kailana's blog is Kailana's Written World. Click on the blog title to get there ... it's a link. Also, you may learn more about each book by clicking on the book titles on her sidebar ... they link to her reviews of each book. And one more thing ... currently at the top of her blog is a photo of her.]
my blog [Marylyn's Travels] lists all the books I have read this year plus it has a link to my shelfari (another great thing Bonnie found, I think through Margreet) which lists almost all of my books. The only problem is that I dont have them all here in Korea most of them are still back home in Georgia :-(

I dont know how to post here. I can only leave comments. Is that normal? And I dont think my last comment is showing... I mentioned that newly written books with substance sounds great. But as long as I can get the book, I dont mind reading different genres too.

[Bonnie says: Simrit, look at the invitation I sent you by email. Follow instructions there, and you will be able to post. I'll send you another invitation NOW, just in case the other one got lost. If you need help understanding what to do, leave another comment on this blog or send me an email ... and I'll show you how to do it. ALSO: Your last comment is below the post where you commented, and I have now added it to the post itself, two posts below this one.]
My blog is at http://readingadventures.blogspot.com/
and there is also an index at
which is alphabetical by author

Oh my, ya'll have LibraryThing too! I was so excited that this existed when I found it a few months ago. Unfortunately, I'm putting in books as I read them -- I aim to use it as a list of everything I read, not just what I own -- so it's not a great picture of what all I read yet. But here is the link:

I'm with the rest of you. You can always jump over to my blog [Stephanie's Confessions of a Book-a-holic] and check out the books I have been reading or the lists of books I am going to be reading. Or we can just go back to picking randomly. I'm easy!! (my librarything account is under Stephlee_77.)

NOTE FROM BONNIE: Thanks to all who added LINKS to their blogs. We have a whole bunch of Newbies here who don't know HOW to find your blog. Like yours, Stephanie; if they know to click on your name in the comments, they would find TWELVE blogs. Yes, I know eleven of them are joint ventures, but the newbies are still stumbling around and would be confused. If everybuddy will please provide links or URLs, it would save me time.
By the way, I won't be doing all this extra work forever ... lol. Once you new blogger buddies get a handle on the blogging world, this should work easily.
