Bold the books you have read. Italicise the books you might read. Cross out the books you probably won't read. Underline the books you have on your shelf to read or have started reading. Pass it on. (I found this over at Do Thy Research)

I am impressed that I knew just about every book on this list. I think there were only two that I didn't have a clue about. And usually I feel so out of it when it comes to literature written after 1950.




Wow. You crushed me on that list. I'm really impressed! I have read The Handmaid's Tale though. I was truly disturbed - had nightmares for weeks. It was a great book, but I remember the dreams it inspired more vividly.
