Think of ten books it seems you should have read by now but never have. Post them. Feel free to say anything you want about why you haven't read them. Tag others when you're done.
- The following Shakespeare plays: Richard II, Richard III, Timon of Athens
I lump them all into one to leave more room for other confessions. Having studies theater in college and graduate school you might imagine I read a lot of Shakespeare, and it is true, I did. But these three I never read and I think after all that school I just can't bring myself to read another one. Ever.
- A Tale of Two Cities. I was forced to read Great Expectations in 10th grade. Swore off Dickens at that point and cannot convince my adult brain to give it another go no matter how much I'd like to.
- War and Peace. It is a title someone literary should read, right? But in my mind it has so many strikes against it, not the least of which is the fact that it is Russian.
- Anna Karenina. See above.
- Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde. At this point given how much the story has been retold in various ways, I don't see how I wouldn't be disappointed.
- The Time Machine (or anything else by H.G. Wells) I have no good or bad reason. I just don't want to.
- The Poisonwood Bible. Too many people have told me how much I will like it.
- Three Cups of Tea. I want to care, I do. But, in fact, it seems I don't.
- Mrs. Dalloway. I don't know. I probably would like it.
- In Cold Blood. Now that I've seen the great movie version I know I'll never read it.
I'd tag, but Emily probably already has. If she didn't, consider yourself tagged.
