This week’s Booking Through Thursday question: 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?
Alas. The hard part, of course, is narrowing this down to one. There are so many great books I haven’t read yet!
• Middlemarch by George Eliot
• Ulysses by James Joyce
• Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
• The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
• Death Comes for the Archbishop by Willa Cather
• There’s even *whispers* some Jane Austen I haven’t read.
I know, I know, it’s terrible. I’d already been thinking of investing some energy in starting to remedy this situation in 2009. So what’s my most grievous failure? Where should I start? Now, I won’t lie, some of the books listed here are a lot more likely to get read by me in 2009 than a few others. But go ahead, let your voice be heard. Perhaps you’ll persuade me. What’s your vote? Which book makes me the most unread? Think it’s none of those listed? Comment away.
