Still, I feel like I've missed out when I hear pop culture referencing certain classics that I didn't read or don't remember.
- Zen & the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
- Catcher in the Rye
- Slaughterhouse Five
- A Clockwork Orange
- Memoirs of a Geisha
- The Alchemist
- The Four Agreements
- The Bell Jar
- The Secret Garden
- Wind in the Willows
- Uncle Tom's Cabin
- The Divine Comedy (not just The Inferno)
I've read most of these: http://www.marieclaire.co.uk/blogs/543792/15-classic-books-that-you-have-to-read-at-least-once.html
and all of these: http://www.us.penguingroup.com/static/pages/features/tenessentialclassics/
and many of these: http://www.listsofbests.com/list/11305-100-greatest-books .
I am an English Lit major, after all. So I guess my 10 will fill in the blanks in my pop culture classic literature list.
Here is a list I think I can use. It's an updated classics list. Yum :)
What are your beloved books??
What do you still have to read for your Bucket List?
