(linked from KLGoodBooks
) Additions to the To Read list here much appreciated...
Books I want to read or am given to understand I should read:
- Don Quixote
- The Grass Crown (or whatever comes first in that series) (what comes first, anyway?)
- much Dickens
- To Say Nothing of the Dog (I think, I'll just wait until someone loans this to me)
- Sophie's World
- God Particle (the first page amused me)
- The book on a ship captain where one of the characters is named Steven
- The Diary of Anne Frank
- St. Augustine
- Charles De Lint
- Pamela Dean
- Emma Bull (War of the Oaks, Freedom & Nessity)(which one do you start on?)
- War for the Oaks is a perfectly good starting place. (Or you could switch universes completely and start with Finder, but probably only if you already like Bordertown.)
- Sherwood Ring (wait, who is this by?)
- Pope, Perilous Gard (is that Gard or Guard?)
- The Dragon and the George
- ?Cold Mountain (or whatever that book was called)
- The Dancing Wu Li Masters by Gary Zukav
- Blind Man's Bluff (or something like that. supposedly the army details are incredibly accurate (as recommended by someone who was in the field for 20 years or the like). However I have a sinking feeling I have the wrong tittle and may never find the right book which makes me sad.)
- S by H (?)
- The Alchemist
- Into the Woods by the author of Into Thin Air
- more by the Author of Grasshopper Catcher (or whatever that was called which I've read or had read to) whatever his name was. (Never Cry 'Arp')
- Lipsmackin' Backpackin' by Tim & Christine Conners (actually a book of recipe's for Backpacking food, so is more as a recommendation of information rather than spare time reading)
- The Delany Sisters (don't remember what their book was called or even if I have their name right, but is more for me to rememeber)
- author: Estes. Books? maybe Eleanor?
- "Moffats, the alley" ?
- Lies My Teacher Told Me <-History you may not hear about in school. The atrocities or blunders the US has commited for one thing. (?)
- The Food Revolution by John Robbins <- One of my relatives tells me I should read it. I'm slightly skeptical. I wouldn't mind being more educated with regards to the abuses of the food industry, but if it starts being anything like a diet book I'm skipping sections.
- The Principles of Psychology by William James (1890)
- Star Wars books by Timothy Zahn
- Steven J. Gould
- Disguised: A true story by Pat Moore
- Dragons Bane by B Hambly

- (?more?) Goethe, A Clockwork Orange
- Peter Duren's 'Theory of HP Spaces' (colloq)
- Jordan's Cours d' analyse (mention in MApol)

- Dragons Milk
- David Edings
- Spell for Chameleaon by Piers Anthony
- Heir Apparent by Vivian Vande Velde
- Wizard's First Rule
- The Golden Compass ?by Pullman?. I don't understand why so many people are so in to this book. Entertaining. But not that high on my list. Probably because I had expectations that were too high.
- Beggers In Spain by Nancy Kress
- Pandora's Star by Peter Hamilton -- R rated, consider yourself warned. But compelling read, some interesting story. If you like it you probably want to order the sequal before you finish the first one - ends in the most impressive cliff hanger I've ever seen.

- Grooks IV by somebody-or-other
- The Zombie Survival Guide: Complete Protection from the Living Dead by Max Brooks
- Pride and Prescience, Suspense and Sensibility, North by Northanger by Carrie Bebris *so wrong! so very very wrong. but amusing. Why are there so very few happily married main characters in literature anyway?*
- Declaration of Independance
- A Simple Story, Adeline Mowbray
- Joseph Andrews by Fielding (I liked Adams)
- The Count of Monte Cristo
