Given my fondness for books, its surprising really that i havent posted on this topic.

Oh wait, i think i have. a review. well, never mind.

Anyway, lifted this thing (i believe its called a meme) off SEV’s blog. So here goes:

“Look at the list of books below, bold the ones I’ve read, italicize the ones I might read, cross out the ones I won’t read, underline the ones on my book shelf, and place parentheses around the ones I’ve never even heard of.”

>>The Da Vinci Code – Dan Brown
>>The Catcher in the Rye – J.D. Salinger
>>The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy – Douglas Adams

       Does having a soft copy mean its on my shelf?
>>The Great Gatsby – Scott F. Fitzgerald

>>To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee
      An all time fav.
>>The Time Traveler’s Wife – Audrey Niffenegger
>>(His Dark Materials – Philip Pullman)
>>Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – J. K. Rowling

>>The Life of Pi – Yann Martel
    I have read it in snatches…don’t think I’ll like it.
>>Animal Farm – George Orwell
>>Catch 22 – Joseph Heller
    It’s like this for a reason…it’s only half-read.
>>The Hobbit – J. R. R. Tolkien
>>The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time – Mark Haddon.
    Awesome book.
>>Lord of the Flies – William Golding
    Something about the name makes me not want to read it
>>Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen
>>1984 – George Orwell
    Supposedly very dark….then again, had it been named ‘1983’, I might have had second thoughts. :-p
>>Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – J. K. Rowling
>>(One Hundred Years of Solitude – Gabriel Garcia Marquez)
>>Memoirs of a Geisha – Arthur Golden
>>The Kite Runner – Khaled Hosseini
>>The Lovely Bones – Alice Sebold
    Really?
>>(Slaughterhouse 5 – Kurt Vonnegut )
>>(The Secret History – Donna Tartt)
>>Wuthering Heights – Emily bronte
    Have been off this tome ever since a friend read it and gave a scathing review of the type which only teenage minds are capable of giving.
>>The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe – C.S. Lewis
>>(Middlesex – Jeffrey eugenides)
>>(Cloud atlas – david Mitchell)
>>Jane Eyre – Charlotte Bronte
>>(Atonement – Ian McEwan)
>>(The Shadow of The Wind – Carlos Ruiz Zafon)
>>The Old Man and the Sea – Ernest Hemingway
    Some portion of this tortured me in 10th grade. I’ll never pick it up willingly..
>>The Handmaid’s Tale – Margaret Atwood
>>The Bell Jar – Sylvia Plath
    Dunno, sounds suspiciously like something inspired by a science lab.
>>Dune – Frank Herbert
    Someday. Have heard a lot about it.
>>(Sula – Toni Morrison)
>>Cold Mountain – Charles Frazier
    Brokeback mountain?
>>The Alchemist – Paulo Coehlo
>>(White Teeth – Zadie Smith)

    Is this a how-to?
>>(The House of Mirth – Edith Wharton)

    Funny. No thanks, though.

What titles would you add to this list, be it because you love them or because you think they’re worthy of note?”

>>Gone with the wind – Margaret Mitchell.
    But of course.
>>The incredible journey – Sheila Burnford
    One of the earliest books I remember reading. I am still captivated by it.
>>Rendezvous with Rama – Arthur C Clarke
>>LOTR – The trilogy – J.R.R. Tolkein.
   The undisputed master.
>>One flew over the cuckoo’s nest – Ken Kesey
   Very different.

 P.S. i don’t think I am doing a meme again anytime soon..this is hard very hard work. 😦
