*feels like a nerd*
wow! this is a great list, but may i make some recommendations...

'The Great Gatsby' - had to read it for a class once and i'm glad i did because it's a great book.

'I Capture the Castle' - they recently made it into a movie which i have not been able to see yet, but that is a great book and looking at the books that you have read, i highly recommend it.

'The Pillars of the Earth' - really really long book, but worth reading. i wanted to just scream at times because it was so long, but after i was done reading it i wanted there to be that much more to the book.

and a couple of others that i'm enjoying right now...

'The Man Who Was Thursday' by G. K. Chesterton - was recommended by a good friend of mine and it is pretty crazy so far. i'm not done with it, but it's not a very long book, so it has hope.

'White Oleander' by Janet Fitch - I'm also reading this right now (i know, i know, i'm one of those people who are constantly reading like 5 books at a time), i'm not even half way done with this book but i'm enjoying it all too much.

'She's Come Undone' by Wally Lamb - finished this one in a couple of days. for me it was really a self-reflecting kind of book, to cause me to look at myself and see what i consisted of. interesting story, i wanted to strangle the main character in parts and in others i understood what she was going through. just a darn good book.

'Beginner's Luck' by Laura Pedersen - LOVED THIS BOOK!!! i think the one really good thing about this book are the bright, colorful and amazingly portrayed characters. reading this book was just like being comforted in whatever situation was going on. this book is definitely a securty blanket.

so yea, i guess i'm crazy, but i just love books!
