Ok, so sue me; I stole this from fellow bloggers! Now, I'm not great with names and I'm not going to look anything up to verify it so, here goes...
If you choose to do (read: steal) the meme too, tell me in the comments so I can check out your answers on your blog.

This was hard. I had to think. I could barely remember what books I read in high school. That's sad, I mean it was just the other day. Oh, well. So, many good books out there! Now, I am reading " Bel Canto" by Ann Patchet. So far, so good.
