This weeks question is:
What one literary work must you read before you die?
What literary works do I need to read before I die? Wow. That's a really big question. There are so many great authors that I want to have a chance to experience. This year I plan to make it through the rest of Shakespeare's plays (I've already done about half), so I'll hopefully be able to take that off my bucket list fairly soon. If I was really going to make a list of books I'd be actively upset over on my deathbed It would go a little something like this:
Infinite Jest - Foster Wallace - This is probably going to be my summer read, as I constantly hear that this is a 'summer after college, finding yourself' kind of experience.
On the Road - Kerouac - The original scroll was at my school last year and I never went to see it, really, I haven't had any interest in Kerouac until lately, but he is talked about so much that I would be interested to read him, and sad if I never got around to it.
1984 - Orwell - I feel like such a bad reader for having never having read this. I've quoted it quite a bit, just from overexposure, but I feel like a fraud. FRAUD I SAY. Sorry, I'm being over dramatic.
Those are the top three books I'd be upset over at the moment. I couldn't just pick one. Sorry, I'm bad with instructions.
Funfact: My favorite word in Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone is mimblewimble.
