Top Ten Books I Can't Believe I Never Read
A meme from The Broke and the Bookish
1. All the Pretty Horses, Cormac McCarthy
2. The Crossing, Cormac McCarthy
3. Cities of the Plain, Cormac McCarthy --The Border Trilogy has been on my list of books to read for the longest time. I can't believe I haven't read them yet.
4. A House for Mr. Biswas, V.S. Naipaul --everyone who has read this book seems to rave about it. When am I going to get to it?
5. Lost Illusions, Balzac --Have you read this?
6. Tom Jones, Fielding
7. Pamela, Richardson
8. Absalom, Absalom, William Faulkner
9. Go Down, Moses, William Faulkner -- I've read The Sound and the Fury and As I Lay Dying several times each, and it's time for me to read the last two Faulkner titles (I've read all the rest, some more than once)...
10. Of Mice and Men, Steinbeck. I know, everyone else read this in 10th grade. I've read The Grapes of Wrath and East of Eden, but I've never read this slim classic everyone knows. Please don't tell my students!
That's my list of books I can't believe I haven't read. What's on your list?
