  1. Don't forget the wheel of time ;)

  2. You are a busy bee. I love reading too. My goal is to read one hundred books per year and I'm pretty much always on my target with the exception of the year when my child #3 was born and I only read 88 books. I have read (and sometimes multiple times) many books on your bucket list. Everything by Jules Verne and Victor Hugo, but mostly as a child, and oh so many times! To Kill a Mockingbird has been one of my favorite books for many years, but I haven't re-read it in a while. I noticed that sometimes when I re-read books I don't find them as fascinating as I once thought. It happened to all of Dostoevsky books. Somehow having children made me like Russian classics less. I highly recommend the Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett. I couldn't put it down.
