This is my top 10 list of favorite books of all-time, grown-up edition, fiction category:
Anna Karenina: long and lush and lovely.
Atlas Shrugged: Dagny Taggart kicks ass.
The Awakening: perhaps my favorite of all time.
Crime & Punishment: gripping.
Crossing to Safety: I [heart] Wallace Stegner.
The Dharma Bums: makes me want to run off to the mountains right now!
Gone with the Wind: ignore the cheesy cover, there's more tot his book than a silly love story.
Lolita: best opening sequence ever.
Pride & Prejudice: no silly thing I could write here would do this book justice.
The Sun Also Rises: makes me want to fight a war, become and alchoholic, and move to Paris in only 251 pages!
Now that I've written that list, all I want to do is curl up on the sofa and read those books. Drat this need to get things done! Why can't I be retired now?
