Lady Wylie of Toronto tagged me for a meme which seems rather fun. So I am temporarily setting aside my no-more-memes rule and playing along.
"The rules are to provide a list of books that you have on your shelves to see if anyone can learn about you from them - but not just any books. They have to be books that you've actually paid for, nothing given, borrowed, stolen, or whatever."
I see that no total is given so I am arbitrarily picking twenty-two titles. Eleven fiction and eleven non-fiction. And I paid for all of these.
