1980s – 1990s

I never kept a book journal when I was younger, but I really wish I had. Since I started keeping one in 2002, I’ve been able to go back and find out what books I read, how I liked them (if at all), and whether or not I’d still recommend them.

So, I’ve decided to keep a list of all of the books I read as a kid or teenager … the ones I can dig up from my memory, anyway. :o)
