I've been thinking of doing one of these. Very nice list! It's sad that there aren't more 'book' lists made here. The visual medium simply overshadows it and, honestly, I don't think people read as much as they once did either.

I agree. Contrary to what people may think looking at my lists, books are my first passion, not fashion.
