Broke and Bookish! Every week they post a new topic of Top Tens to answer, and anyone can join.
This week's Top Ten is Books That Have Been On My Shelf the Longest But That I've Never Read, and Holy Cow! There are way more than ten of these on my shelf! I must admit that I am a person very strongly drawn by a beautiful cover. After all, who isn't? So many of the books I haven't read are very blandly covered, or they were a library discard and so the cover is no longer legible. Hmm . . . Which ones are my Top Ten?
Top Ten is Books That Have Been On My Shelf the Longest But That I've Never Read
1. The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde (play)
I loved the movie for this one! I'm not sure how true to the book it was, but it was fabulous!
2.Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
I'm sure I'll read it eventually.
3. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne
This one sounds so interesting! But, yet again, I never had time.
4. Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
I really enjoyed the beginning of this book. Umm ...
5. Hard Times by Charles Dickens
I've had good recommendations for this one. Someday I'll follow through.
6. Emma by Jane Austen
It been on my TBR list. I keep bumping it down.
7. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
I tried reading this one. But it was years ago, and, well, I got bored.
8. The Calender Papers by Cynthia Voigt
It's a Newberry Honor book, and I know they have wide range, but one day I'll get to it. :)
9. The Three Musketeers by Alexadre Dumas
I started this one too. But life got busy and I sort of forgot about it.
10. Old Yeller by Fred Gipson
I think I'm cheating a teeny bit on this one. I have distant memories of a read-aloud long, long ago, and I'm almost sure I know the plot. That counts, right?
Okay! That about sums it up. Any recommendations as to which to read first?
