Revisiting: My Up and Coming Book List

>> Thursday, December 30, 2010

So a couple years ago I did a list called "My Up and Coming Book List" - since then, I've read alot of them, removed many and have added a bunch to the list. I revisited this list below with what I've read, what I still intend to read, what I no longer want to read and have added new books to my "To Read" list. See something glaring that I'm missing?
