I'm a sucker for a good list
Time magazine book critics list their choices for 100 top English language novels from 1923 to the present. It's an interesting list. I'm sure it will generate howls from various quarters because of its inclusion of several science fiction novels and even one graphic novel. I've read.... I'm not at all certain that I wouldn't have taken V for Vendetta over Watchmen, and I certainly don't understand how Thomas Wolfe (either You Can't Go Home Again or Look Homeward, Angel) were omitted. And I still contend, having read a significant quantity of Salinger, that Catcher in the Rye is my least favorite of his writing. As usual, I have major pangs of "I really ought to get around to reading that" as I look through the list, especially in this case for The Big Sleep, The Great Gatsby, On the Road, and The Grapes of Wrath. Great Zarquon, how can I do so much reading and not be better read than this?

As we continue homeschooling, I expect you will end up reading a fairly large portion of the ones you've missed. You're a computer geek, not an English major.

I think animal farm & 1984 have had made more sense to me since my move back to saudi arabia.
