1001 Romance Novels

I know I have a problem, I just cannot resist. When a friend from a reading group posted a link for the 1001 Romance Novels To Read I just had to check it out. Thanks for the link, Md! And now I have the share it with you...

The list comes to us courtesy of Romantic Times Book Review, and from what I understand it's a list that romance readers want to read in a lifetime.
