- Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland – Lewis Carroll – Read it as a child, I think? Parts of it, anyway.
- 1984 – George Orwell – Read it in high school. Reread several times.
- The Lord Of The Rings trilogy – JRR Tolkien – Read it in middle school. Dad made me read The Hobbit first. Reread several times.
- War And Peace – Leo Tolstoy – Started to read it, couldn’t get into it.
- Anna Karenina – Leo Tolstoy – No.
- The Adventures Of Sherlock Holmes – Arthur Conan Doyle – Recieved it as a gift as a child. Read most of it.
- To Kill A Mockingbird – Harper Lee – Read it in high school.
- David Copperfield – Charles Dickens – No.
- Crime And Punishment – Fyodor Dostoyevsky – Every now and again I try to read The Brothers Karamazov and fail. Never touched this one.
- Pride And Prejudice – Jane Austen – Nope.
- Bleak House – Charles Dickens – Nope.
- Harry Potter (series) – JK Rowling – No, and you can’t make me!
- Great Expectations – Charles Dickens – In High School. Reread once since.
- The Diary Of Anne Frank – Anne Frank – I think I was supposed to read this in high school, like it was on a summer reading list, and didn’t.
- Oliver Twist – Charles Dickens – Nope.
- Fifty Shades trilogy – EL James – Who would claim to read this, who has not? Anyway, no.
- And Then There Were None – Agatha Christie – Read in high school. Reread several times.
- The Great Gatsby – F Scott Fitzgerald – Read in High school. Reread several times.
- Catch 22 – Joseph Heller – Nope. The ubiquity of the title as a catchphrase has made it seem unecessary.
- The Catcher In The Rye – JD Salinger – Tried to read it a few years ago. Found it dull. Tried reading some of his short works and found them also dull. I sort of get what the big deal is, but I do not share it.
Read – 7
Not Read – 9
Mostly Read – 1
Tried to read and could not – 2
Let’s count the Mostly Read as Read and the Tried to Read as Not Read, and say I’ve read 8/20. Insufficient exposure to Dickens really brought my numbers down.
