I need input…book reading input!
I’ve told several of you that my goal for reading on our 2nd honeymoon trip next week is to mend some of the gaping holes in my classic literature reading list. I want to spend some time reading truly great books that I haven’t yet read.
Here, not yet in order, are some of the books I’m considering taking. I would appreciate help in ranking the list, or in any suggestion you might have to add to the list. And do it fast! We leave next Tuesday.
“The Karamazov Brothers ” by Fyodor Dostoevsky
“Anna Karenina” by Leo Tolstoy
“The Catcher in the Rye” by J.D. Salinger
“Sun Also Rises” or “Farewell To Arms” by Ernest Hemingway
“Wuthering Heights” by Emily Bronte
“One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich” or “The Gulag Archipelago: 1918-1956” by Alexander Solzhenitsyn
“Ulysses” byJames Joyce
“Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley
“To the Lighthouse” by Virginia Woolf
“Passage to India” or “A Room with a View” by E.M. Forster
“The Age of Innocence” by Edith Wharton
“Angle of Repose” by Wallace Stegner
So, hit the ‘ol comments and let me know what ought to be on my list. I’m thinking five or six books.
