Big List - 101 - 200 [Sep. 11th, 2007|03:21 pm]
one searcher of purple fish in the murky depths
Some of these are repeat authors, so I won't rave about Terry Pratchett etc again :-)

continued list of recommendations:

104 (you have to read the classics! plus, this is short), 118 (again, classic, but it's oscar wilde and he's brilliant! plus this is a ... visual book), 120 (it makes weeding an overgrown garden interesting), 122 (again, great characters, drink lots of tea and curl up on the couch one sunday, or many sundays), 123 (or at least one of the books. it is actually quite a saga), 128 (who dunnits are great), 129 (a bit dense at times but i read it again and again), 138 (a bit religious at some point i think? can't qutie recall, but little thriller that's worth it), 142 (i think i went to an art class with her!), 143 (maybe not this book, but 'how to be good' is quite entertaining and easy quick etc to read), 178 (a bit repetitive and disturbing but it is a commonly referred to book and name), 184 (or one of her books at any rate, and she wrote detective novels!), 187 (teh accents are a bit tough to read silently, but interesting nonetheless), 194 (fun!), 198 (i enjoyed this, and it was helpful to have read before studying a paper on king arthur and all that lot), 199 (i loved this book when i was a kid!),a nd roald dahl is mentioned a lot and he is great and you should read him if you haven't.
