an exercise in mind expansion

so since I left school I haven't so much as opened a book,
I think it's about time I get back in gear and ya know
read something with more literary value than People magazine

so here's my list (cause you know I'm a big list maker)
of books to finish by the end of the year
(and yea I know I'm supposed to have already read some of these in high school, but you didn't either so hush)

  1. Atlas Shrugged -Ayn Rand
  2. A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess
  3. Catcher in the Rye - JD Salinger
  4. The House of Mirth - Edith Wharton
  5. Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
  6. Mrs. Dallowway - Virginia Woolf
  7. Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte
  8. Madame Bovary - Gustave Flaubert
  9. Great Gatsby - F. Scott Fitzgerald
  10. The Tin Drum - Gunter Grass
  11. Catch 22 - Joseph Heller
  12. The Dharma Bums - Jack Kerouac
additions welcome
"I had seen so many begin to pack their lives in cotton woool, smother their impulses, hood their passions, and gradually retire from their manhood into a kind of spiritual and physical semi-invalidism. In this they are encouraged by wives and relatives, and it's such a sweet trap."  (John Steinbeck, Travels With Charley)

I hope to never be so tied and bound to societies social rules that I smother my impluses (aside from any destructive ones), or hood my passions. That's the stuff life is made of, be it good bad or inbetween.
