Booking Through Thursday

We’ve all seen the lists, we’ve all thought, “I should really read that someday,” but for all of us, there are still books on “The List” that we haven’t actually gotten around to reading. Even though we know they’re fabulous. Even though we know that we’ll like them. Or that we’ll learn from them. Or just that they’re supposed to be worthy. We just … haven’t gotten around to them yet.
What’s the best book that YOU haven’t read yet?

Oops, I answered that wrong. Uhm ... one book on my should-read list is A Suitable Boy, by Vikram Seth. I have it, and I admire it greatly. It's on my classics list for the year, so hopefully it's one I can cross off.

I haven't done BTT for a while, but if there is one thing I do *heart* it's a list. I've let my Wednesday Wants slip lately, but here are the books I've added to my List (ie: a red indexed notebook that I've had for a very long time):

Austenland by Shannon Hale

Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King

Memoirs of a Master Forger by William Heaney (aka Graham Joyce)

An Evil Guest by Gene Wolfe

The Mystery of Grace by Charles de Lint

Lamentation by Ken Scholes

And here is my trusty notebook:

Not much to look at, but really, really handy. :)

I've been meaning to get to Beekeeper's Apprentice. I've only read 2 of her other novels (Locked Rooms, and Keeping Watch).

My BTT is here

My dad raves about A Suitable Boy. I rave about Austenland. :) It was a lot of fun.

I have Austenland on my wishlist. Hopefully I'll be able to grab it soon! :)

I have Austenland on Mt. TBR, but I'm waiting until I finish my Jane-a-thon (currently still in Emma) to read it, as well as The Jane Austen Book Club

Austenland has come home from the library three times now and went back unread. Just too many books!

I have not heard of any of those books, thats one thing I like about BTT, I always find new books to put on my list of book I want to read :)

These are new to me. I'll have to add them to my list as well.
