Omigod, how delinquent I am.

I have not read any of these nominated books, although I know of many of them.

Time to print out the list, and organize a 2011 reading plan.

Great idea, Kathy! Let us know what you read and enjoyed from this list. I did better with this list than I usually do with the Edgars list.
