I'll do it tomorrow! For some reason I'm motivated to do this one (maybe because some of my favorite authors are on there). You've read quite a few!

When I lived in Japan the school I worked at had a library of books that teachers had left behind (for the last 10 - 15 years), so I read a lot of books I might not have normally picked up just because they were there... and in the process learned of some authors who I have since read many more book by.

Ha ha! Ok, I need to read more Canadians and you need to read more Latina authors! ;-)
