So today, I jumped on over to The Blue Bookcase and I've decided to hop into their Literary Blog Hop. The question for the weekend?
What one literary work must you read before you die?Now this is a daunting question (and morbid!). It can be answered in two ways: 1) what I would recommend to you all to read before you die; and 2) what I want to make sure I read before I pass. I've decided to answer both.
2) Okay hmm. There are so many! And lately I serioulsy have been reading the ones I've really wanted to get off of my plate. I think the only ones I really have to set a goal to finish before I die are the really incredibly long ones. Those intimidate me (yikes!). But at the same time I actually don't really have a desire to read things like Moby Dick or Ulysses. Just never appealed to me. One of the books I REALLY want to get around to soon but I keep pushing it off is The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins. I've heard great things and it's in my Kindle but it's long. One day!
Have any suggestions for me? What must I read? Do you agree with my assessment of 1984? Shout it out in the comments :)
