And the ones that are in yellow are books that I have but haven't gotten around to reading it.

Wow.. 16 out of 100 books! I have certainly been not reading lots of books. Maybe I have been reading the wrong books all the time. Haha.. Its hard reading 'good' books. Esp books like Les Miserables (Hugo). You have to be a very strong serious reader to be able to read it. Don't ya think so?

I'm saving money to buy the Time Traveler's Wife!

Some books like Lord of the Rings, Gone with the Wind, and Wuthering Heights are made into movies. So kinda lazy to read the books. But books are different right? They're always better.

But I'm sure they're books out there that are just as qualified to fit into this list. Hidden treasures waiting to be discovered. Anyone knows any books like this?

I wonder what the other books are about. To be in this list must be something. Whether this list is important anot. I shall go look out for these books are go try and read it. Wonder how it would be like if I have read all 100 books in this list?

Copy and paste it in your blog if you wanna do this tag!

What books have you read and love most in this list?

I'm not into fiction. But currently I'm reading Istanbul: Memories and the City by Orhan Pamuk, Nobel Prize winner 2006.I'm half way through the book. I must say that it's a beautiful and soulful memoir of the writer and his home city. It is also a book with strong political and social message about the current issues in Turkey.

Hi Princess Shin!
I love books.
Book is the best friend!
You are a good reader. You are very young and your time is full of many things you must do. Right?

My favs is Bible. And medical books. But I like many more. But a time go too fast...
And I strongly recommend you "Fit for Life- A New Beginning" by Harvey Diamond. I'm sure you'll be satisfaction.(1000%)( or any books by this author). You can find it at the library or buy. It's not expensive. (look on my other blogs).

Thanks for this great post!

Good luck and happiness to you!

terra shield,
I have the Catcher in the Rye. Just haven't read it yet. I have no idea what the story is about. The Adrian Mole looks like a children's book. Is it?

Wow.. must be a heavy read then. Thanks for your recommendation. I shall certainly keep it in mind! =)

Hello! I'm always happy to see you in my blog! Books are currently my best friend now, other than my blog that is. Though my blog is taking more of my time. But I'm tryin my best to read as much as possible. You did a review on that book once right? Its not fiction is it?

Thanks for everything. Take care! =)

Yup! Go ahead and have fun with it!
