  1. I haven't read very many from this list, but I like it - there are some titles in there that I have been meaning to read!

  2. Wow, so many I haven't heard of, most honestly. You are doing good in the science section. I do like how they put them in categories.

  3. I hadn't heard about this list. I'll have to take a closer look at all of these books. I read primarily nonfiction.

  4. @Aths - there are some (well, many) titles I haven't even heard of, so it's good to see what is out there!

    @Marce - Yes I think it helps to put them in category - I haven't actually read any of the science ones, they are just on my TBR list (and I bought 2 of them back in college days!)

    @Shannon - good to meet another NF fan! :)

  5. Wow, the only one of these I know for sure I read is In Cold Blood. I might have read Double Helix in high school, but if I did I clearly don't remember it very well! LOL

    I think I will refrain from posting this on my blog to avoid further embarrassing myself! LMAO
