The list author says: "What have we here - a top ten list that is composed entirely of books that I have not read. You read that right. I have not read a single one of these. I have tried. Multiple times. For each book. But have never been able to get through any of them. This is despite their classic status and despite the fact that I have picked each of them up any number of times.
I know I am going to take some grief for many of these. But that's ok. I read a lot - if there are a few I can't finish, so be it.
So here you have it, my list of the ten most significant books that I know I should read but simply cannot get through I continue to hold out hope that one day I will find the right version and be in the right mood and finally be able to cross them off my Âto readÂ list Â but that day has yet to come"
