This list seems pretty generic (a lot of stuff I read in high school). Mon is planning to put together a different list - one with a black history month theme. One of my lifetime reading goals is to read something by all the Nobel laureates in literature. But maybe for now I'll put together a list popular science books from my shelf. Tomorrow, after I've submitted 2 abstracts, applied for a job, and bought an interview suit.

Lovely Bones was written by a Philly main liner. It's weird, because she mentions my old HS art teachers and lots of familiar places in her writings. -Singlegirl

My shot at a list is up--consider yourself tagged as well.
