200th Blog... Already?

****Updated**** at the end of the list

On March 30th, I posted my 100th blog. On it I listed all sorts of trivial things about me, some you knew, some you might have wished to never knew.

Can you believe that I've reached (actually I've surpassed) my 200th post already? That just seems CRAZY! But still really satisfying for me to know that I haven't given up yet. Hey, I've been around longer than some tv shows! (And for a good reason too, don't you know it? No laugh track - this puppy is always on live and without a net to catch me if I fall.)

So to commemorate this second 100th posting time, I am listing, for your reading enjoyment, 100 books that I think are worth your time. Some books you may have read, some you might find that you want to read yourself, some you may have read and thought, "She thought that was good?" If you see any that you might be interested in reading but want more information on it before you commit and want a reason for the recommendation, just email me and I'll give you what I've got. (But bear in mind, it may have been a while since I've read them, so some of the details may be fuzzy.)
