Interesting list! I can't believe that Left Behind is #18! Can't you just read the back cover for that one? j/k I've never picked it up myself, so maybe it's a heavy, well-written novel intricately structured for your reading enjoyment. I guess I'll find out when you get to #18!

Hey Liz. I know, I know, Patrick reading Left Behind?!? But, there is a reason for every book on my post, and I'll give you the brief back-story every time in the little section I call "Why I read it." Look for it on the Left Behind posting!
