How interesting to read someone elses list. I daren't post mine: there are too many detective novels and light romances in amongst the more worthy choices - and they're all mine so I can't use the book club choices option!

Hausfrau, there's a proper range of stuff on my list too. I want to read all sorts, not just stuff to make me think but sometimes I want just entertainment.

Oh are you on goodreads? I would love check out a lot of the books you have read there. I am currently reading The Secret Keeper

TEW, hello! I'm not on Goodreads because I don't think I could do another bit of social networking! I didn't really enjoy The Secret Keeper as much as i'd liked her other books. Are you enjoying it?
