Fantasy Meme


Here’s another one of those “50 Books” memes that have been floating around. This one’s all Fantasy, baby. The rules are simple. Bold the titles you’ve read, put an * in front of the ones you liked and a – in front of the ones you didn’t. This meme has reminded me of a whole bunch of great fantasy books to give to Scott.
