Have you read these books?

I love lists of books. Just went through the list of Time Magazines All-time 100 Novels (in English from 1923 to the present). I had read about 50 and plan to put a few on my list.

Another blogger's list has Joyce and Proust at the top, as would mine. If you can't quite get into Ulysses, yet, try Joyce's short stories or A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

You owe it to yourself to read widely, greatly, omnivorously.

Right now I'm reading Eat, Pray, Love, and the Tin Roof Blowdown. Both are very good reads.

What are YOU reading?

Thanks for the list. I started reading the 100 top books on gutenberg. Of late my reading has lost steam and this list, about 20-25 of which I intend to put on my list, hopefully will motivate me. I too have read some of them but I now feel re-reading some of them would be great because I read many of them as a teenager and...well I am older now. Maybe they will be different.
