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
