Before starting the list I've read 29 (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, Life of Pi, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Robber Bride, Jazz, Beloved, The Handmaid’s Tale, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Song of Solomon, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, The Bluest Eye, In Cold Blood, Franny and Zooey, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Catcher in the Rye, The Little Prince, Gone With the Wind, Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Hobbit, Billy Budd, The Age of Innocence, The House of Mirth, The Turn of the Screw, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, Wuthering Heights, Frankenstein, Oliver Twist, Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility) of them. And I've tried to read 7 (The Poisonwood Bible, The Bonfire of the Vanities, Love in the Time of Cholera, Cold Comfort Farm, The Great Gatsby, Women in Love, Sons and Lovers) of them so I'll have attempt again.
There are tons of books on the list I've always wanted to read but never got around to it. This list will definitely force to read them! I've put the first book on hold. I'm starting at the bottom with Aesop's Fables. I'll keep you informed on my progress.


  1. Don't read Don Quixote. Just don't do it.

    It's the most boring and mean spirited book ever. Hey let's make fun of an old man for 1,000 pages. Whoopee.

    That is one of those "classics" I just do not understand.

  2. My first visit to your blog. Found you via comments in Life as I know it in Memphis. I want to thank you for the Crockpot blog suggestion. What a great blog that is! Just stopped by to say "HI" and thanks!!

  3. Hi Linda, Thanks for visiting my site... every Tuesday we have Toby Tuesday about my little black poodle, so check back if you'd like. xo

  4. That's a challenge! Looking forward to your reviews ;o)


Shiny! I love comments.
