I do like lists. From the Huffington Post, here’s a list of books that apparently people claim to have read but haven’t.
The Canterbury Tales by Chaucer – I read the Knight’s Tale at school, and it’s on book mountain, but I haven’t read any more tales.
Democracy in America by Alexis de Tocqueville – nope. Maybe I should add it to the list.
Ulysses by James Joyce – nope. Probably won’t either.
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens – nope. The excessive sentimentality of the films put me off.
The Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie – no. It’s on book mountain so I probably will.
Moby Dick by Hermann Melville – why yes. Lots of lists of whales.
A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking – yes, I have. And I understood some of it.
Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace – um no, never heard of it.
The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco – no. Saw the movie.
Remembrance of Things Past by Marcel Proust – no. But I really feel I should.
Don Quixote by Cervantes – no. It’s on book mountain.
As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner – no. I might though; I really like the title.
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoi – no, but it is on book mountain, so one day I will.
Two for me then. What about you?
