We've been at the Library a great deal lately and it always makes me realize how little I read anymore. To that end I've made some lists:
A) Books I haven't read, but want to: Pride & Prejudice, Look Homeward Angel, Of Mice & Men, Emma, Little Women
These books have been on my list for sometime and I never get to them - that's a good goal for next year.
B) Books I have read, but wish I hadn't: The Jungle, The Federalist Papers, Grapes of Wrath, Animal Farm, Catcher in The Rye
Most of these I had to read - for school or should have read in school, but Cliffed - so I went back and read them - why I'll never know - perhaps I'm more educated for reading them, but I was happy ignorant too!
C) Books I'm glad I DID read: Anne of Green Gables, As I Lay Dying, Great Expectations, Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn, The Giving Tree (Anything Shel Silverstein)
These are just some of my favorites. I've read Anne at least 3 times and I never ever get tired of it. I LOVE Dickens (who doesn't) and unlike many I LOVE Faulkner.
D) I am currently reading: Lots of children's books (best books EVER) and The Body Farm
What are your favoties and what are you reading?
I'll keep you posted!
