    1. Yes, thanks. I want to read that book as well. I’m adding books to my list as I remember them. If you have any more suggestions, please let me know.

  1. Great list. I’ve been meaning to read Their Eyes Were Watching God. I’ve seen and liked the movie, but I hear it lacks the character development of the novel.

  2. Great blog you have here but I was curious if you knew of any
    user discussion forums that cover the same topics talked about here?
    I’d really like to be a part of group where I can get comments
    from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest.

    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Many thanks!
