  1. I just picked up Rebecca and hope to read it soon. I've heard such great things about it!

  2. That is a very cool idea.

    And Rebecca is great - lump through the first kind of slow chapter and it's amazing from there on out.

  3. Great idea! I keep lists of all the books I'd like to read, but when I get them I often can't remember why I wanted them - it is great to have the links handy.

    I bought a copy of Rebecca last week. I'm really looking forward to reading it.

  4. I have a list like this too. Somehow it is over 100 books now. I've got to start reading faster.

  5. Sarah, if you figure out how to read faster or even just more often, please let me know how!

  6. Oh, oh, oh! I LOVE Rebecca. Read it right away, please. :)

  7. bookfool, I actually HAVE read it! But it was in high school and I don't remember anything at all about it. I have a pretty copy on my shelves and everything because for years I'd say it was a favorite book and that I loved it. But I really can't remember ANYTHING about it.
