My Book Bucket List

Has anyone seen the movie The Bucket List? It sounds like a really great premise for movie. Two terminally ill men travel the globe with a list of things to do before they kick the bucket. The movie has gotten mixed reviews from critics. But, how bad can it be with Morgan Freeman, who I've adored since he was Easy Reader on the Electric Company, and the always fab, if a little over the top, Jack Nicholson. If you've seen it, let me know what you thought. My own Bucket List is still a work in progress. But I do have a Book Bucket List, books I've always meant to read and hope to read one day before I kick. So without further adieu, and in no particular order, here is my (partial) Book Bucket List. I say partial because it's growing everyday!

Love in the Time of Cholera
The Hobbit
The Coldest Winter Ever
What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day
Invisible Man
Memoirs of a Geisha
Eat, Pray, Love
The Other Boleyn Girl
The Emperor of Ocean Park
Nowhere is a Place
The Darkest Child
The Neon Rain
Angels and Demons
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
Going Down
Mixed: my life in black and white
Naked Lunch

What a great list, Angela! I loved Angels and Demons. Let me know what you think of it.

I haven't seen The Bucket list yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing it.

You and I share several books on your Book Bucket List, including Love in the Time of Cholera and What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day and . I'd like to add The Alienist and John Lewis's Walking with the Wind.

Great idea, great list! I've read several and would love to know what you think of them as you read them. There's a few I would love to read as well. I'm off to make my own list.
