Wow. The reading lists are amazing, I admit. Some I've read, some were required for when I was in school. I *live* to kill a mockingbird, good book.
You know, as soon as I went back to my bookshelf there were a thousand other books that I thought of to replace them, but you kow, I dont think I am going to revise it. Suffice to say there are hundreds upon hundreds of excellent books to read.
Its my day off again. I finally got to the pool. It felt wonderful. I need to get there more often.
That's it for today. Maybe someone wants to tell me their least favorite books?
I disdain Grapes of Wrath and Of Mice and Men [although I do agree they are important reads.] I didn't like Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance but I appreciated the symbolism. I HATE Charles Dickens....*sigh* For a lover of classics I'm not much a lover am I?

I would have to say that Mein Kampf is my least favourite book.
I can safely say I detest it.
But it, also is an important read....if only to know how a madman thinks....
Mrs Dalloway. It's like a book made out of treacle. x
This is dead easy: Moby Dick.
I loathe it passionately.
I have tried reading "Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone" three times now, and I just can't get past about page 40. That is the only book I can recall not being able to finish, and ergo it must be on my "worst books" list.
The ending of "Hannibal" was f*cking rotten as well (the book, not so much the film).
Giants in the Earth - I was supposed to read the entire thing for high school English because it's about these Norwegian immigrants to the midwest, but the description of the grasses of the plains was as overwhelming boring as the great plains are big. If I would have finished the book I'm sure I would have been ready to crawl in a chest, as the mother in the film does when she goes crazy from the isolation. Uplifting book!
I did my senior year paper on Of Mice and Men...I didn't hate it.
I need to become a reader. I'm trying so hard. It's just not in my blood.
"Under the Tuscan Sun" - the most boring read...ZZZZZZzzzzzz. It was too painful to finish, and I am a firm believer in finishing books!
Throughly enjoyed the movie though. Virtually nothing like the book, except for the Italy part.
'ce puits que rien n'epuise' by J. Renard. Couldn't understand a fucking word of it.
This is a really tough question, Alecya! I'm going to have to get back to you, because I am guessing my casebook on Torts is not the kind of response you are looking for :)
