Oh, I loved Bel Canto! And the Red Tent. What a great idea, I love this list.

I've read 4 on your list.

I love this idea because I'm getting all sorts of good ideas of books to read.

And meeting lots of new blog friends!

So agree with The Red Tent and The Unbearable Lightness of Being...I couldn't get in to Bel Canto but then again, I was packing up and moving in less than 3 weeks with a 13 month old - might have to give it a shot - Have you read The Time Travelers Wife? I had it on my shelf for a year and thought oh well, I guess I'll read it and it was amazing...

Wendy, I almost think I have Time Travellors Wfe on my shelf...I'm going to have to check. :) Bel Canto was a book that I wasn't really interested in to begin with, but I got into it and it was GREAT. :)
