I love books. I love lists. That's how this idea was born.
I'm an anxious bibliophile who sometimes has trouble making decisions, so perhaps it's no surprise that the thought of identifying my favorite book--or even my top 100 favorite books--gives me a vague panicky sensation. The truth of the matter is that I have lots of favorite books, depending on the genre, my mood, or the particular stage of life I'm in. Or if I'm really hungry. It'll be easier for me to sleep at night if I call this list "100 Books," with the understanding that this list includes manyof my top favorites but not necessarily all. (*breathes deeply and tries to relax.)
How many books on this list have you read?
(This isn't a competition. But I've read them all.)
*The fine print: only one book per author. I cheated and didn't quite list 100 because I want some wiggle room. And I often put the first book in the series, even if it's not necessarily my favorite of the series (*shrugging woman emoji).
