      Thank you for giving me the framework (#20BooksOf….) to help my reading! 🙂
      You’ve got just how many to go for the summer 2018 session?

    I love this idea, Nancy. I am doing pretty well with reading from my TBR shelves so I don’t think I will do a specific list, as long as I can stay focused.

      Tracy, whatever works for you! I need a list…I need a nudge to get me from #1 –> # 20.
      Loved you Goodis review….such a sad life he had.

    Good luck with your autumn list. I loved Palace Walk (the entire Cairo trilogy, actually) and Our Souls at Night.

    Ohhhh Our Souls At Night – loved it!!
    Are you planning on reading your list in order, or has it just panned out that way so far?

    Palace Walk is also somewhere on my tbr, but I doubt I will get to it this year.

      Brona, I want to follow the reading list order.
      I slapped it together months ago and made a #20BooksOfWinter as well.
      This keeps me reading without having to decide: Read it or not? I have to!
      Reviews are very short on Goodreads. I keep this list up-to-date and
      my reviews are the random thoughts that pop into my head when the book is closed.
      No note taking….no analysis…no long research….just Read and go on to the next selection!
      Kim-Jung-Il Productions…I start to day after I finish wiith Mary Wollstonecraft …the last chapters 6-13 are very short compared to the first 5 ! Whew!
      Hope the weekend is fun…relax…smell the proverbial roses!
