That being the case I went through and compiled both lists into one, removing duplications. I ended up with 164 books which means that while there were some duplications, there were lots of differences as well. Many of the ones that were duplications were also the obvious ones that we have already read.
I think I like the list from Tacoma Public Library better simply because more of the books we have not read looked interesting. As well there were fewer on that list that we had read and not liked.
There are a few on the combined list that we read so long ago when Froggy was just a teeny tiny baby that after being reminded of them I want to share again with her. I was surprised at how few in total we had read given how many books we read.
I am not sure we are going to read all of these but it gives us lots of room to explore new books.
Here is the list. I have italicized the ones we have already read. I have marked in bold the ones that are on our library request for the next trip. I will try to update with reviews as we read through them.
