  1. I've read 13 (or 20%) of your list. And once I dig into Whipple, that number will shoot up.

  2. @Thomas - I enjoyed reading your top ten books. I already bought the Lipman book and I'm looking forward to reading it. You're going to love Whipple!

  3. I just finished reading The Enchanted April recently. It was the first e-book I've ever read and I enjoyed it immensely.

  4. Great list! I've only read 7 from your list, but have many more on my wish/TBR list. Happy Reading in 2010.
