Bibliophile’s Bucketlist

Well, I found another list. I keep finding all these cool lists around the web and feel like I have to add them to my blog….like a compulsion. Thankfully I see a lot of similarities with some of my other lists….so I wont have to add all 100 to my TBR. I liked this list mainly because I did see a bunch of unique books that I would probably not read without a prompt to do so. Not sure if i’ll read all of this list or all of my other lists, but it is very useful when I need inspiration and recommendations.

So which of these have you read? Are any of these your favorites?

I'm an avid reader and love most all books, but my favorite genres tend to be mystery, adventure, science fiction and classics. Genres I tend to shy away from include romance, contemporary fiction and chick lit. If I’m not actually reading books, I’m probably at work shelving them at my local library.
