My Favorite Books

Some of the books from my list.

I have a list of favorite books that is a work in progress. The books that make it onto the list are the ones I love to read over and over again. They are also books there is no question I'm keeping. I evaluate every time I move if I am going to keep certain books. I also look through my books when I feel like selling to a used bookstore. The books on this list don't ever get considered for removal from my library.

The list doesn't have very many books on it at present. There are so many books I love, but few I want to have on my list. Currently, if there are multiple books from a series, some of them are listed individually, while others are just listed as the series. Just because the whole series does not appear on the list doesn't mean I don't really like them, they just don't go on the list right now. I may change how series appear on the list as it starts to fill out more. I wanted to show my list as it will be referred to when I place a new book on it, or read one from the list and post about it.
