All the Light We Cannot See is on my list too, since we're reading it for book club soon. I want to like it, but the rebel in my sort of has a chip on her shoulder, since everyone's all up on it's junk, ifyaknowwhatimean.

Nice collection of books! I feel like the universe is telling me that I need to read Hemingway as the last couple weeks he keeps coming up from all sorts of different quarters. Also, I was not familiar with Bookmooch so I checked it out and it looks pretty fun. Thanks for the intro!

@Christine--I felt the same way about All the Light You Cannot See. I wasn't planning to read it because of the hype and because of the subject matter. But the stories that are told and the way they're told are enjoyable enough in themselves to overcome both, imo.

@Stephanie--I'm a fan of Bookmooch. The site functionality is not always the best, but it gets the job done. Also, the selection over the long haul is pretty good, as long as you can wait years for free books!
