Congratulations on making the 50, Wild! :cheer: Even sickness could not keep you from crossing the finishing line. :-)

Proof: Yes, you really ought to read TheHandmaid's Tale. I expect to see it amongst your 2011 list.

Wild: I see you have favoured some fringe authors in your top 10 list, like that Atwood woman. ;) Seriously, that's an impressive list. (I totally agree with you on the Arendt book. That was awesome. :-) )

You know how I love those Atwood-like fringe authors, Baker ;-). But, you are right I've read a lot of Atwood this year. And I still have Lady Oracle in my to read pile...
