USA TODAY

USA Today is celebrating it's 25th anniversary by compiling 25 lists over the nest 25 weeks. Week #3 is th most 25 influential books of the last 25 years.

I only have two of these. "A Brief History of Time" by Steven Hawkings and "Harry Potter and the Sorcerors Stone" by JK Rowling. I had "Iacocca" at one time but I must have gotten rid of it during one of my infrequent book thinnning projects.

And a coworker had "Left Behind" in the office for about 6 weeks. I read it in two days. She never read it.

So, naturally, I've picked a couple more of them I want to read. Cold Mountain, Beloved, Fast Food Nation, The Deep End of the Ocean....OK. More than a couple. You know, if I needed more books on my TBR list, all I have to do is search my LibraryThing catalog or go through my "Book of Great Books." Why do I have to keep finding new books online?

I believe we may have a sickness. LOL. I kept my nose out of a book and off the computer yesterday and it's amazing how much I got done.

Such a strange list of books, isn't it?? I've read 5 of the 25 and have a couple more.
