This past summer of 2006, I promised myself I would settle down and read. I promised myself I would squeeze in all the “classics” I have never read. As I have mentioned before, I am playing catch-up with the rest of the literary, book-wormy, smarty pants, world that I avoided most of my youth…

I DID accomplish reading these:
To Kill A Mockingbird – Harper Lee
Breakfast at Tiffany’s & In Cold Blood – Truman Capote (my hero)
The Catcher in the Rye – JD Salinger
The Great Gatsby- F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Scarlet Letter – Nathaniel Hawthorne
Lord of the flies-William Golding

I PLAN on reading these by New Years 2007:
Pride & Prejudice / Sense & Sensibility – Jane Austen
Wuthering Heights – Emily Bronte
Walden – Thoreau
Great Expectations & A tale of two Cities – Charles Dickens

That should cover all the “classics” right? Am I missing anything?
