"The Best Book You Never Read"
"We’ve all seen the lists, we’ve all thought, “I should really read that someday,” but for all of us, there are still books on “The List” that we haven’t actually gotten around to reading. Even though we know they’re fabulous. Even though we know that we’ll like them. Or that we’ll learn from them. Or just that they’re supposed to be worthy. We just … haven’t gotten around to them yet.
What’s the best book that YOU haven’t read yet?"
I just finished perusing our shelves to see what books we have that are on the list and found a number of books I haven't read yet. Classics we have collected over the years from library sales, antique store book finds, and family members. I really have no excuse for not reading them, since I do dust them off every so often and look through them, thinking about the stories. So I will make a plan to do so. Soon... I promise, I really will!
Just a few of the books on the shelves:
War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy. This one is going to be first on the list and first read for Callipidder Day's Spring Reading Challenge.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I do have an anthology of Jane Austen stories which also includes Persuasion, Emma and Northanger Abbey
The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins,
The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoevsky
The Old Man and The Sea and For Whom The Bell Tolls by Ernest Heminway.
Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.
What "best" books do you have gathering dust on the shelves that are calling your name?
