I love book lists! I know a few and I'll certainly check out the rest! Thanks for sharing.
My TT is up too.

Great books!
The Historian; I'm also reading it (in Dutch) but unfortunately I've been having too little time to continue lately.
I will try to find the other books on your list in the library here.
Have a great TT and thanks for visiting mine!

Colleen Gleason said...

Ummmm, wow! I did mine on books this week too. (Books I read and loved as a child.)

I have The Historian too, on my TBR pile, and The Prophet, from which we did a reading at my wedding.

Carmen said...

wow zeus, your human pet is DEEP! :)

DivaP said...

Thanks for the list! I just finished
The Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd and I'm waiting to get The Thirteenth Tale: A Novel by Diane Setterfield, so I was looking for some reading ideas! You "read" my mind :)

SheCrochets said...

I read the Historian, too, but was a little disappointed in the ending. Loved Dogs of Babel, though! Good list!

The Meezers said...

Pooh and the Philosophers! That is our mommy's FURRY FURRY FURRY favorite book (ok, well that and Mists of Avalon are kind of tied).

Kukka-Maria said...

Two of those are on our bookshelf, too.

The rest of them are clearly above my agent's head and now, having seen your list, she feels incredibly stupid.

Great job! Now I don't have to do anything to make her feel stupid today! Thanks!

Knitting Maniac said...

You have a great collection there, Zeus! I love these lists ... gives me a good idea of what is good out there.

Happy TT!

mar said...

I have only read The Prophet (nr6), but I have seen the movie One flew over the cuckoo's nest!! I am missing a feline book here...
happy TT :)

Interesting and eclectic collection of books. :) #8 is the only one I've read.

Great books :) You have a diverse collection there :)

Happy Thursday!

Dane Bramage said...

Great list Zeus. I have not read any of those.

Thanks for stopping by my T13 13 Stress Relievers Edition

Sadie said...

I wish I had more time to read-- there are so many good ones on your list!

Happy TT! My list ishere

Merlin said...

Wow, Zeus. My mom doesn't read very many books. She always has one on the table next to the couch, and she looks at it like she wants to read it, but it never happens.

as long as she rubs my belly that's the most important thing.

I have a list today, too!

Cheysuli said...

Which are your favorites Zeus?

DEBRA said...


YOU read LOTS!


Melissa said...

Love the list. I have "The Tao of Pooh" here. I'll have to check out some of the books you listed!

Happy Thursday. Here's my TT.

Kailani said...

I haven't heard of any of those. Looks like I have more books to add to my "must read" list!

Hey, if your crate can fit under the airplane seat, you're more than welcome to come to Maui with us! LOL!

Blue Moon said...

Ok, as sad as this may sound, I must admit the only books in my house right now are childrens books. Dora goes to school, and The Cat In The Hat dont count much do they! Looks like a great list though Zeus!

Ocean Lady said...

Very intriguing looking books there. The only book we have here on your list is The Prophet. I'd love to check out Pooh and the Philosophers; I've heard of that b4. I've seen One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest ~ loved it. :)

Natsthename said...

I didn't know that cats could read!

Domestic Geek said...

I own none of those. I'm intrigued by the Pooh one, though. Thanks for stopping by my TT.

NOLADawn said...

I've got 5 and 9.... hmmm, anything to do with your human pet's and my profession maybe???

tiggerprr said...

You have some very cool books in your list. I'll have to check some of them out.

Thanks for visiting my site! I too played Evercrack for four+ years on the Prexus server, took a little MMORPG break due to work then now have been playing WoW since it came out. It's all about the people you meet in those games that keep me there. Fun fun! :)

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

furry nice collection! our Lady loves an adores books. rite now she could make a Thursday 13 of "13 P.G. Wodehouse books that she's bought and wants to read but Cocoa keeps headbutting them out of her hand every time she sits down"

Tigersan said...

Me not too good at reading the books. Me starts to read them and then, around the end, me stops. Me blames "Reading a Rainbow" for this. He always read a story and stops just before the end. He has conditioned me to accept books this way ;)

Jenny Ryan said...

I really liked reading The Historian. Are you enjoying it?
