Great list! Do you mind if I ask how you keep track of your list? I'm trying to set up a better way to keep track of books that I've read as well as books that I want to read...

I just keep a list in a Word document. Some books I want to read I keep on a private Amazon wishlist. Books I actually own that I haven't read are kept on separate shelves. There's definitely a more efficient way... Maybe some place like goodreads.com or shelfari. I tried to keep a database, but that was too much trouble.
