Friends, I have a few confessions to make, and I hope you all can still respect me afterward. (Deep breath...)
I have never read anything by a Bronte.
I have not read Grapes of Wrath or Brave New World.
I have not read The Lord of the Rings trilogy or The Hobbit.
I have yet to read The Hunger Games, Eat, Pray, Love, or anything by Zadie Smith.
I probably won't read many other popular titles that came out in the past ten years.
I definitely won't read an even larger number of classics.
OK. I feel better now. But only slightly.
I've read a LOT of books, but there will always be those certain titles that the collective "they" insist you have to read. I'm part of "they" when people tell me they've never read The Catcher in the Rye or 1984. I mean, how could you not have read those??? Right?
With so many works of literature out there, past and present, it would be impossible to attempt to read all of the good ones, let alone great. Which titles are you guilty of not reading? Or are you not guilty about it at all?
Leave your comments and then enjoy these two completely unrelated items to start your weekend off right:
1) The best PSA I've ever seen in my entire life - it teaches valuable life lessons, the most important being Read a Book! Disclaimer for those who might watch at work or in front of the kids: Contains Adult Language!
2) Corgis + a peaceful night's sleep = the best things in life, so I leave you with this combination of the two (!!!) And now your lives are complete :)
