All i recognize is stephen king, others I dont know. Happy Thursday!! thanks for visiting!
 
I don't think I'd wanna read 4 book at once... my mind couldn't keep up LOL! ;) My 13 is up :) Happy Easter.
 
Ah, glad to see there is another who has a mountain of books to tackle. I haven't even heard of any of those! Though I love Dave Barry and may have to check that book out.

Thanks for visiting my 13.

Happy Easter.
 
Isn't Dave Barry so funny! :) Let me know if you like Wicked the book. I've heard mixed reviews, but loved Wicked the Broadway show.
 
Nice! I loved Wicked and Confessions. I want to read Lovely Bones, but I already know it is so sad!
 
Oh my - I have not one book you have listed...Thanks for stopping by My Lighter Side (can't change the blog idenity on your comment - I have two blogs *grin*)
 
The only one of them that I've read was On Writing by Stephen King. My TT is up.
 
I read "The Lovely Bones", but I've heard of several of these. I just wish I could find a few minutes more everyday to read novels. I have my nose stuck in history or faith-based lit most of the time. So many books...so little time.
 
I read Lovely Bones and enjoyed it. I am reading Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil right now. How was Cell?
 
Did you like Wicked? The ending left me hanging and I was ticked.
Guess I better read the rest of his books. People tell me they tie up loose ends.
 
You have a great taste in books!
 
Read #1, loved it and #10..Mcguire's work is great! Gotta read "Son of a Witch!" It's really good!!

I have "Mirror, Mirror" and "Lost" on my nightstand waiting in line to be read, also by him.

Happy Thursday, My 13 is up!
 
Ooh books! I have been checking them out regularly from our church library (since I owe the public library some fines LOL)

Thanks for letting me know how to check my post number!
 
I haven't read any of those. Thank you for visiting my T13
 
Wow - you have read a ton of books! Good for you - I love to read!

My TT is up to!
 
I've been wondering if your #1 on the list is any good. I'll have to check it out now that I know of somebody who has read it.

Thanks for stopping by my TT. Happy Thursday!
 
that's a lot of books that I have yet to read --- but now will be checking out

Reading 4 books at a time? Wow!
 
I read constantly, everywhere, any place!
Thanks for the heads up!
The incident of the dog is great!
My TT
 
You are quite the avid reader.
 
I didn't know Wicked was a book! I'll have to check that one out :) Thanks for stopping by!
 
"The Lovely Bones" That book made me cry.
 
"The Lovely Bones" That book made me cry.
 
Great 13! I just finished "House" by Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker! Thanks for stopping by my 13!
 
What a lot of books. I'm really not a regular book reader, but there's certainly quite a collection there.

Happy Easter :)
 
Oh man! I wish I could finish DaVinci Code that I started in, oh, 2003! LOL Someday....

Thanks for visiting my TT!
 
I hope this won't get lost in the comments, but did you really get Wicked? I'd like your thoughts on what certain things meant or symbolized. Is "Confessions" better than Wicked?
 
How on earth can you read that many at once? I have one sitting there collecting dust, and have a hard time surfing all the blogs I want to surf!

Dang - you're good.

Happy Easter to you!! xoxo
