    Why doesn't George R. R. Martin use Twitter? He already killed off all 140 characters.

    More than half. And a fair proportion of the others I have read all I want or need (eg Harry Potter). But then I did read English Literature at university where you have to plough through a very long reading list.

    But of all the books on that list (and many many others besides), there is only one which makes me go all evangelical, and that is To Kill a Mockingbird.

    If there was just one book that I'd say you have to read, it's that one. I came to it very late in life (read it three years ago in my mid 40s). Didn't know what to expect. To be perfectly honest I was "just getting round to" a classic that I've known for ages I want to tick off.

    And it blew me away. If you haven't read it yet, then please do. Fabulous.

    28. And since classic literature is not usually something I pick up on my own terms to read, I'm super proud of that number! (Granted, there are definitely some on this list I've been meaning to get around to, once I no longer have assigned reading for school.)

    Literature for the win!!!

    39 total, 32 completely.

    Honestly, I think King Lear/Julius Caesar should have their own listings, as they have been some of Shakespeare's best IMHO.

    19 I've read for sure, and I'm pretty sure I've read bits and pieces of another 4, in these old books my parents had that had excerpts of classics for learning readers.

    I'm surprised to see Curious Incident on this list. I read that before it suddenly blew up and became the campus shared reading book for a year. Excellent book, don't get me wrong, but these lists are always... odd.

    First post and I thought this a fitting place.
    I've read 61, and started another 4. (I always want to like Dickens but I just don't.)

    I've only read 1984 and Lord of the Flies as part of school, and own The Little Prince (due to watching the old 80's anime and got nostalgic when I saw the book in HMV).

    So.. only 3? Wow.

    ^ this. I read To Kill a Mocking Bird for the first time last year and loved it (I'm mid-40s). My daughter was assigned the book in school and hated it (after I told her how much I loved it). She now does not trust my judgment on books. Although I did redeem myself with Ender's Game, which her teacher recommended for her summer reading, and I said I enjoyed.

    Wow...poor. I don't really read classics though, unless they're in a language other than English, because they're translated later than they were written, making them more interesting. For example, when I read Little Women in Bulgarian (which was translated in 1990s), it was awesome. When I tried it in English, I laughed straight for 5 minutes before putting it down.

    I also start things then don't finish them, so that explains the italics...lol.

    Wow, just 23...not gonna lie, I'm a little ashamed of myself I was sure I'd read more than that. There are are a few that I've got on my "to read one day" but a fair few that I'd never even heard of before!
