Good Reads

I often use Goodreads as a place to keep track of the books I've read, want to read, and currently am reading. I decided to post a list of the books that I've rated with 5 stars. I've listed them by my rating, so it currently shows some of my 5 star books, but since it doesn't show them all, I decided to still post a list. They are in order by author's last name because it is too hard to pick a true favorite. Also, most of these I have read multiple times in my life. Even re-reading this list, I have my favorites, but since my favorite would probably be different depending on the day you ask me, I won't tell you what it is. It also turns out that there's a widget for blogs and I've added it in my side bar.
