nloudon is contemplating employment.
I’m an avid reader, since I read/watched a walk to remember (loaner) I’ve tried to read books on lists, but often found myself sooner perusing through libraries and just picking up books that suited my interest. Sophomore year of high school in my honors english/world history class we had a book list of books that got us english credit points. I ripped through those books so fast my teachers had to loan me copies of their books. The only book I admitted defeat to was Gulliver’s Travels, I was awake with that book less than my AP Biology textbook. Now looking at this list of 100+ (board and user list) I find myself looking at some old friends and not enemy #1 (Gulliver’s travels). http://www.modernlibrary.com/top-100/100-best-novels/
I’ve read Great Gatsby (more than twice), Grapes of Wrath, 1984 (it was great really), Animal farm (required reading in school), Lord of the Flies (also required), Age of innocence (classic), and The Call of the Wild. From the second list I’ve also read Lord of the Rings (a second edition copies from a friend), To Kill a Mockingbird, Ender’s Game (great series and author), Farenheit 451,My Antonia ( Another classic), and Beloved (only slightly better than Gulliver’s Travels). Right now I’m reading other book that are on my 43Things list, but I do have some of these books bought second hand from thrift stores in anticipation of reading them. Maybe I’ll start reading them after I finish this last batch of library books or on my trip to see my parents this month for thanksgiving.
