If you are reading this, tag you’re it!

In following the links back it turns out this is not supposed to be some definitive list, just a list someone read on annother blog & then compared which books they had read & had not read against others. It is a good list though, quite a few classics etc. I feel pretty good about all the books on the list I’ve read though there are a few I know I should have read back in what passed for high school.  For awhile my mother tried to get me to read books by ‘great authors’ which is how I read The Great Gatsby, 1984 & Jane Eyre, it didn’t last long, I didn’t care for much of these. We were on our way to becomming completley at odds with each other & shortly after that I just stopped even trying to do any schoolwork with her.

  1. Some day Becky, you are going to have a lot of time on your hands and you ARE going to read The Mists Of Avalon. Thank you for reminding me that I wanted to read more Wally Lamb. I loved She’s Come Undone. I loaned that book out last year and haven’t seen it since, but that is one book I could read over and over. Kinda like Come Spring

  2. Yo’uve inspired me to read some more. I read a lot, but not as many books as I’d like. I’m so busy reading for work that I often don’t make the time to read longer-form work. That’s gotta change…
