Stats on those 38 books:

- 8 books still haven't been found
- And 11 books were found but I realized I'd already read them.
Here's the list of books I've already read or plan to read soon:
Bitten – Kelley Armstrong—This one’s on my TBR pile, saving it for Angie’s February TBR challenge. New to me author.
Dancing With Clara – Mary Balogh—great book, wish I didn’t have such a hard time finding her traditional regency backlist.
Cherish This Moment – Sandra Canfield—realized I read it when it was new.
Conquer the Night – Sandra Canfield—realized I read it when it was new.
Jerchio - Sandra Canfield—realized I read it when it was new.
Night Into Day – Sandra Canfield—realized I read it when it was new.
The Daughter – Jasmine Cresswell—realized I read it when it was new.
Bad to the Bone - Debra Dixon—saving this for Angie’s February TBR challenge. New to me author.
Better Than Before - Judith Duncan—I loved this book, loved the setting, loved the h/h’s strength of character.
Dangerous Waters - Amy J. Fetzer—haven’t found yet, actually I found it at my local UBS, but refuse to spend $8.00 because it’s considered a “collectible.”
The Trouble with Valentine's Day – Rachel Gibson—I went on a Rachel Gibson glom after reading this one. I like her books, but there not keepers for me.
The Vampire Viscount - Karen Harbaugh—great book, I think I passed it on to Rosario or Ana.
Sweet Lullaby – Lorraine Heath—great book, I passed it on to someone in the trade group.
A Countess Under the Stairs - Eva Ibboston—This was a fabulous book. Great time period, interesting story.
The Shadowy Horses - Susanna Kearsley—Loved this one enough to pass on to my sister with the promise it would come back.
Four Men and a Lady – Alison Kent—This one was just okay for me, but I’m very consistant with Alison Kent, anything I’ve read by her ususally falls into C+ to B for me. I read her, but she’s not an autobuy favorite.
Fallen From Grace - Laura Leone—This book was outstanding. One of my favorites reads from last year. I probably would have kept it, but Rosario was desperately trying to find a copy, so I sent mine.
The Shadow Runners - Liz Maverick—The 2176 series started me reading SciFi romances again. This one was good, but I didn’t like her Crimson City book at all.
Stitches in Time – Barbara Michaels—realized I read it a while ago.
Do You Come Here Often? – Alexandra Potter—I really enjoyed this one and Going La La. I don’t read a tremendous amount of Chick Lit. but she’s become a favorite.
Going La La – Alexandra Potter—See above.
Someone Wonderful - Kate Rothwell—A good book, I had some issues with her being such a free spirit for the time, but overlooked them because the story was so good and I actually liked that she was a free spirit, which is kind of convoluted but what can I say.
Unmarked Man - Darlene Scalera—TBR pile, will probably read it for Angie’s February challenge.
Till the Stars Fall - Kathleen Gilles Seidel—read it when it was new.
Amazon Lily - Theresa Weir—read it when it was new.
Bad Karma - Theresa Weir—read it when it was new.
Loving Jenny - Theresa Weir—read it when it was new.
Some Kind of Magic – Theresa Weir—read it when it was new.
Passion's Springtime - Lauren Wilde—Angies TBR challenge...
In the Midnight Rain – Ruth Wind—very good book, reminds me I should read more series romance.
Canfield, Cresswell and Weir were all autobuys at one time. And as soon as I read the blurbs I realized I'd read them all before. The sad thing is I skimmed them several months ago and looking back I still can't remember what they were about--that "vaguely familiar" thing again. I will say I can only take Theresa Weir in small doses, her books are always a little too dramatic for me, beautifully written but a little too depressing in large amounts.
So, I'd already read 73 of the original 100. I remember thinking at the time how much I enjoyed the books I'd read and that our taste runs along similar lines, which means I'm in pretty good company.
