Did your favorite make the list?
So deep is my addiction that if I have actually accomplished tasks before writing the list, I will still write them down only to cross them off seconds later.
Perhaps sadder than my love of list-making is my love of list-reading.
So I was intrigued when my daughter got an e-mail from the College Board touting 101 Great Books recommended for college-bound readers.
The list includes such expected entries as "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte, "As I Lay Dying" by William Faulkner and "The Grapes of Wrath" by John Steinbeck.
I have read most of them and would like to put a few on my list of upcomings (I'm still gearing up for a reread of Hemingway so it may be a while before I get to them). I've not read Flannery O'Connor's "A Good Man is Hard to Find" but I'm intrigued.
Check out the complete list and happy reading!
