Help Me Out With Number 40?

Number 40 on my 101/1001 list is to make a list of 25 books I want to read. I am being very picky about the books I put on the list. I am trying to choose books that I have wanted to read for a while but haven't gotten around to it.

I don't want to finalize the list until I am back in the USA because I keep a running notebook of recommended reading that I want to pick a few books from. I think I want to try and stick mostly to fiction books

But all of my list probably won't come from that notebook. Thats where you come in. What are your favorite books of all time? Have you finished a really great book recently?

Here is the list I've got so far:

1. Problems Men Started- Nikki Hardin
2. Animal Farm- George Orwell
3. The Tipping Point- Malcolm Gladwell
4. Housekeeping-Marilynne Robinson
5. Suck in your stomach and put some color on-Shellie Tomilson
6. As If I Am Not There- Slavenka Drakulic
7. The Year of the Flood- Margaret Atwood
8. The Lost Hours- Karen White

Thanks for your suggestions. I'll let you know if any of them make the list!


  1. I really enjoyed "The Glass Castle" by Jeannette Walls and "Running with Scissors" by Augusten Burroughs

  2. Thanks for sharing! I'll check them out
