    I cant do the copy and past as im using my phone and it would take a Very long time to do manualy.

    But Ive read and finished 42 those and about 8 more i did start but never finished for one reason or another.
    I dont consider myself a book worm, but i do enjoy books. I cant imagine myself not reading atleast six of these.
