PM me your top 20 favorite romance novels of all time from any genre and I will update the list here as I receive the votes.   Order does not matter on your 20 votes.

**Here is what I have so far.  From 8 on, the books only received one vote, so they are in order by author.  If we get more votes, we can get more accurate data.    I will continue to update this if we get more votes. 

 

I have had tons of trouble posting this list online, so I uploaded it to this site.  Here is the link:

Kim, do they have to be print books?  One of my all time favorites hasn't come out in print yet (but I'm still hoping it will in the future)  Just want to keep my list kosher.

Angela, do that grid thing - compare each book, like books a, b, c, d, e, etc. Do you a better than b? a better than c? a better than d? It's called Paired Comparison Analysis. Put each option down the left and across the top of a grid/spreadsheet, and compare each one and then count up which ones get the most votes...

And if you're a geek like me, maybe you can figure out how to decide......... LOL!! I'll probably do this all night... LOL

I am way too much a geek, but really don't have time to play today.  I just took a glance at a few of my keeper shelves and picked that I would pick up if the house were on fire.  I am sure I missed a few really good ones and when I see the total list I will be like - Oh yea I love that one, and that one, oh I forgot that one.....

I think we need several lists!! sweet, erotic, funny, historical and check divvvy the historical into time frames..

ok off to review my books read the past couple of years and see what I can narrow it down too..ain't gonna be easy but at least we're all in the same boat! what if it's a whole series??

I ended up starting my grid then  just going with my gut - and I used this criteria: Have I already read it more than once?? If yes, then it went on my list, and I got it narrowed from there. There's a lot of books I loved but might not bother to re-read, and then there's those I pick up and read (or listen to) again just to bring back the afterglow...

that's sort of how I did it Melinda..I'd either already read it more than once, gone back and at least read parts of it, or it made enough of an impression on me after 1 reading that I don't think I need to re-read it to experience it all over again.

I have the list updated, but it would be great if we could get some more responses. 

20 more responses would make it a really good sampling. 

Anyone else interested, please PM me your list.

Wow, very interesting.  Good to see some favourites, even if they didn't make my own Top 10.
