Well....19 read and 13 on the TBR list....that's pretty, well poor, I guess! LOL!


  1. I haven't read a lot of these either as I haven't really been a hard-core romance reader all that long. But think how many great books we have out there still to discover! :)

  2. Hmmm... I'm not a huge romance reader so it turns out I've only read three from the list. Yikes. But I see that anything written by Susan Elizabeth Phillips is a must read, and I happen to have the majority of them out from the library waiting to be read right now, so I can't be doing too badly!

  3. My library doesn't have many Susan Elizabeth Phillips....I wish they did!

  4. I'm so glad your list looks something like mine ~ I think maybe I'd read 8..but I've added several to my wishlists and tbr piles since then :-)

  5. Marg, I'm going to be posting the number of books I've read from the Best Books eva! list. It's extremely pathetic because I've watched more as movied than I've actually read. I think I'll post it later today.


  6. That's a very interesting list. I surprised myself--I've read 35 and have another 11 in my TBR pile. And I haven't been reading romance all that long, or even exclusively. Must be I've been picking the cream of the crop. *tongue firmly in cheek*

    I must say, though, that I didn't love all the ones I'd read from this list.
