Sigh. After over 20 years as a bookseller, I realize how many books I need to read & reread. Thanks, PBS.
So, of course, I had to go to PBS and find out what that was all about.
This list is interesting, with old classics and books with the same title as blockbuster movies (which I have not seen). I copied the list to Word and highlighted the ones I have read. Only about 30%! I might not be illiterate, but I'm not as well read as I thought either, if I've missed all these favorites. In my defense, I do read a lot of nonfiction, maybe 50%.
Therefore; I scanned the list and downloaded one I have never read or even heard of. (See? You can end a sentence with a preposition. I just did it.) The book was The Notebook. I started reading a few pages and did not stop until I finished the book.
And, that is why I didn't post a blog last night.
