What books have you read?

I've read 56 of the books listed here, and 1 (Shakespeare) unfinished. Not bad. Minus: several of the read books (Suitable Boy, Life of Pi, etc.) were school assignments or tutoring self-assignments (as students had to read them). Plus: most of the unread books are of the modern/trendy/"read the book of the movie!" variety. (Admission: I have read Bridget Jones....)

So.... have an English teacher as a mother and you'll read most of the classics at home; have two advanced degrees and you'll probably get most of the rest!

How about you?

  1. I've read 14. Plus some Shakespeare. I think only one was for school. Still, better then double the expected average!
