Today was the first day of school for high school and elementary school children in BC. I was looking through my gigantic To Be Read Book List and was disheartened to see how many authors I've never picked up. It's embarrassing and in some cases blasphemous but there's nothing wrong with a little bit of honesty. I know it's been done before but I've decided to turn this into a meme so I don't feel like such an illiterate dunce.
I've never read...
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Sir Walter Scott
George Bernard Shaw
Henry David Thoureau
It's disgusting really. I've been reading all my life and I could use the excuse that my focus has been on sci-fi and fantasy but that would make me a hypocrite. I haven't read any Arthur C. Clarke, Andre Norton, Robert Heinlein, Isaac Asimov, etc.
And with that I would love to tag a bunch of bloggers but I have no idea if they read this blog. So instead I leave it to your discretion. Will you allow your reading habits to be put under the microscope or does it even matter if you haven't read the "classics"?
