The Book List

Pride and PrejudiceThis is the Book List.

This list is comprised of books that have become engrained in our society in some way. I will not say that these are the best books, simply tomes that have had an impact on our cultural society. While many are arguably some of the greatest works ever written or drawn, others have had a milder but still important impact on all of us. I have read some of these books before, many in school when I may have been too young to truly appreciate them…some might be terrible and others may stir up fond memories of childhood. I will works my way through the list, though I will most likely not read them in the order of the list. I like to hop around.

This list is not complete. My goal is to read 100 books before the deadline, and as you can see there is plenty of room for additions. If you think there is a book or graphic novel that belongs on this list please submit the title and maybe why you think I should read it. There is no stupid suggestion…come on Twilight is on the list…all gloves are off.

I will look to write a reaction to each book after I have completed it. As apposed to the videos that I am doing for the other lists I think the written word deserves to be reviewed in kind.

Update: All List items in bold are ones that have been suggested to me.
