Yes they are only two on my list because those are the books I read so far, I was planning to add the books I'm planning to read as soon as I get a chance to do that.. will post it soon!
Tell me about the books, I have dozens of books that I bought when I travelled to Malaysia that are still celephane wrapped :P I'll get to them one day hopefully before I die that is!
Other than the tons of ebooks that I'm totally into these days after I bought my Sony ereader last year!
I was amazed to find someone into books here (in Jeddah), cuz all my friends and most close family relitives are either not into books or not into blogging! Actually I'm kinda new here too, just updating the looks of my two blogs this past week.
I hope we do become friends, BTW I'm a mom of 4 don't ask me how I get the reading in between :P
