This as Much for My Reference as Your Entertainment

Written by Emma on November 29th, 2006

These are the books I’ve finished recently:
Their Eyes Were Watching God (Zora Neale Hurston)
Catch-22 (Joseph Heller)
The Color Purple (Alice Walker)

Currently Reading:
Cat’s Cradle (Kurt Vonnegut)

In the Queue (no particular order):
Slaughterhouse-5 (Kurt Vonnegut)
Breakfast of Champions (Kurt Vonnegut)
Watership Down (Richard Adams)
Life of Pi (Yann Martel)
Animal Farm (George Orwell)
100 Years of Solitude (Gabriel Garcia Marquez)
The Death of Ivan Ilyich (Leo Tolstoy)

I now own all of the above books. Yey Half Price Books.

Out of books I do not own, I would like to own and read:
The Plague Dogs (Richard Adams)
A Clockwork Orange (Anthony Burgess)

Recommendations welcome. Sticking to ‘classics’ please. (Life of Pi is so good I believe it will be a classic, thus I make an exception).

(Some books off the top of my head that I have already read that I feel will probably be recommended (now you don’t have to):
1984
Lord of the Flies
The Sound and the Fury
Catcher in the Rye
The Handmaid’s Tale
Brave New World
Fahrenheit 451
The Great Gatsby
To Kill a Mockingbird)
