Last year I started this part way through and then got lazy and forgot to update. So, sadly, I have no idea how many books I read. My memory is pretty good regarding the stuff I've read (or re-read) so far this year though, although not the order they were read in. Also, I didn't omit the second Harry Potter book, I only read number one and three this time. Anyway...

01. Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone by JK Rowling
02. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling
03. Rebecca by Daphne de Maurier
04. Bossypants by Tina Fey
05. North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
06. Dead Souls by Nikolai Gogol
07. The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
08. The Evolution of Bruno Littlemore by Benjamin Hale
09. The Princess Bride by William Goldman

Currently reading 10. Wives and Daughters by Elizabeth Gaskell AND 11. The Inferno by Dante Alighieri.

I have a feeling there were one or two more in there but, oh well. Also, didn't count graphic novels or things like McSweeney's.

Definitely feeling inspired by some other people's lists in regard to what to read next!

So I've read these books so far...

1. 84 Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff
2. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
3. Anne of The Island by L.M. Montgomery
4. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Ermm... I'm so far behind everyone else! I've taken to carrying around a book with me and reading whenever I get a spare moment (which isn't that often sadly).
