The Book List.

I used to be great for reading. But unfortunately, in the last couple years, I could count on one hand the number of books I’ve read. I do want to get back into reading and it’s one of my ‘Things’ to do on my list! There’s a lot of ‘classic’ books that I really should have read by now and I plan to make my way through them slowly but surely over the next 18 months.

I’m actually ashamed at how little I read nowadays. I blame my incredibly lazy personality, but that’s all about to change. Here’s the list so far 0 I only have 29 books on the list thus far, so if you have any suggestions for me, please fire away!

 

  1. The Godfather
  2. Lord of the Flies
  3. The Catcher in the Rye
  4. The Lord of the Rings (Lord of the Rings #1-3)
