Meme of Reading

I've read a few, so what the heck...

Do a New Meme!

Here's the Big Read List for 2008. Since they're all about getting people to read for fun, this one has some bonus actions attached to it.

  1. Copy it and remove my designations
  2. Italicize those you read in school
  3. Italicize and bold those you read for fun</il>

Bonus: Pick one book on the list that you will read for the first time in the next month. Put, "I am going to read [book's name] this month, I swear it here, in front of the internet," right below the instructions.

  1. Bless Me, Ultima
  2. Fahrenheit 451
  3. My Ántonia
  4. The Great Gatsby
  5. A Lesson Before Dying
  6. The Maltese Falcon
  7. A Farewell to Arms
  8. Their Eyes Were Watching God
  9. To Kill a Mockingbird
  10. The Call of the Wild
  11. The Heart is a Lonely Hunter
  12. The Shawl
  13. The Grapes of Wrath
  14. The Joy Luck Club
  15. The Death of Ivan Ilyich
  16. The Age of Innocence
  17. Washington Square
  18. A Wizard of Earthsea
  19. The Thief and The Dogs
  20. Housekeeping
  21. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
  22. Old School

Uh, yeah. Several of those I haven't read weren't written before I got my BS, so my schooling can't get *that* much blame. But I know there are several I've meant to read and just not gotten to (bolded, no italic). The others? I mostly haven't even heard of them -- so am I missing something? Or are they not worth special effort? (he asked, suggesting blasphemy...)
