Palmtree Pundit (a blog I read every day) links to an interesting reading challenge. I’m not much of one for this sort of thing. I don’t do NaNo, I’m not interested in posting answers to those silly quizzes that make the rounds, but this was something that I keep meaning to do anyway. Essentially, it boils down to reading 5 books that you own and have been meaning to read but just keep putting off. Me, it’s not because I’m always buying new books, but because I get books from the library, and those have a deadline so I put off ones I own that I can read “anytime” which ends up becoming “not at all”. So, here is my list:
1. The Republic by Plato
2. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
3. Lord Jim by Joseph Conrad
4. The Book of Lost Tales I by JRR Tolkien
5. The Odyssey by Homer
Oh, and the post title refers to this.
