Booking Through Thursday (38)

Today’s guilt-ridden meme:

We’ve all seen the lists, we’ve all thought, “I should really read that someday,” but for all of us, there are still books on “The List” that we haven’t actually gotten around to reading. Even though we know they’re fabulous. Even though we know that we’ll like them. Or that we’ll learn from them. Or just that they’re supposed to be worthy. We just … haven’t gotten around to them yet.

What’s the best book that YOU haven’t read yet?

Obviously, this list is, in actuality, excessively long, but here are a few of the “best books” I hope to get to this year:

  • The Road, by Cormac McCarthy
  • The Iliad, by Homer
  • Atonement, by Ian McEwan
  • The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, by Michael Chabon
  • The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins
  • Sense and Sensibility, by Jane Austen

What “best books” are you hoping to read this year?
