Well, I’ve seen Miss Erin, Anilee, anime, and Summermoon do this.

What: Top twenty favourite books in no particular order. Don’t think about it for too long. Take twenty minutes only to compile your list. Bold the ones you’ve read, or reread, since you’ve started blogging. Include novels, non fiction and plays.

[OK, so I don’t know how long I took, but I know I have way more than 20. Sorry, but I have a lot of favorite books…but PA is #1 in my heart, of course. 😉 And I tried putting them in order, but…took to long.]
