    In my last count, I have 597 book in my personal library. I think I've read about 60 to 70 of them. So my list would be huge. However, due to a temporary move, I have a small box of books that I will chose my next few from.

    "The Magic Toyshop" by Angela Carter
    "Her Fearful Symmetry" by Audrey Niffenegger
    "Three Dollars" by Elliot Perlman
    "The Spirit Cabinet" by Paul Quarrington
    "A Summons to Memphis" by Peter Taylor
    "Nobody's Fool" by Richard Russo
