A guide by Molly Bloom "sun_in_my_mouth"

Studious inquisitive idealists might leave college with the promise that they are entering a fresh, exciting world. For me, that was 5 years ago. Much to my chagrin, (particularly these past four years,) I discovered that a seemingly sparse number of people read often, or read decent literature. I also found that I've wasted many years reading books that aren't worth batting an intellectual eyelash at. I have finally chucked the old and entered the new: the work of reading what is important and significant. So, this list is sure to grow, as it has only had time to develop over the span of two years. I include the books that affected me greatly in character. This list certainly is not finished or comprehensive... --> ,,Wise Blood: A Novel,,Lolita (Everyman's Library (Cloth)),The Glass Menagerie,You Can't Go Home Again,Tinkers,The Rainbow: Cambridge Lawrence Edition (Classic, 20th-Century, Penguin),,Mrs. Dalloway,Brideshead Revisited (Everyman's Library Classics) I've not seen the new version, but I'd highly advise against it. How can you top Anthony Andrews, Jeremy Irons, Lawrence Olivier and John Gielgud?, The Sheltering Sky,Specimen Days: A Novel,The Magus,,The Brothers Karamazov,The Tin Drum (Everyman's Library (Alfred A. Knopf, Inc.)), Middlesex: A Novel (Oprah's Book Club),In Search of Lost Time: Proust 6-pack (Proust Complete) Made it through Swann's Way, and I'm going to read the rest. I must. Blood Meridian: Or the Evening Redness in the West (Modern Library)East of Eden,,Don Quixote,,Suttree,,
PoetryUncollected Poems: Bilingual Edition (German Edition),Collected Poems of Dylan Thomas 1934-1952 (New Directions Book),,Leaves of Grass: New York Public Library Collector's Edition (New York Public Library Collector's Editions),,The Complete Poems (Penguin Classics),,Complete Poems and Selected Letters of John Keats (Modern Library Classics)
