WOW! You have a ton of books and I dont know ANY of them! I'm so glad I came across your list! I hope to look these up and have a few added to my 2009 reading list. Most other BTT lists I saw have stuff I've already read.

Thanks for sharing!

Niteswimming like the R.E.M. song? I used to listen to that all the time.

'3 Cups of Tea' and 'The Senator's Wife' are titles I've seen everywhere lately. I'm filing them away for future reading...

The only one of those I have read (actually listened to, first time for audio book for me) is Dewey. Very sweet and fun.

I haven't read any of those yet, but I have Dewey in my TBR and I'm looking forward to reading it!

Pam - Have you come up with your favorites of 2008 yet? You read a lot of books last year.

Out of my picks, I think you might like Dewey the best.
