random book meme

bookstackI wish I could remember where the hell this meme came from... but it's just been kinda sitting in my unpublished blog posts for a while...

I'm sure there's some rhyme or reason to the booklist too... I don't know that it's best sellers, but it's sure to have been some list of important books at some stage...

Anyhow...

I thought I was decently well read until this.

Yeah, I thought the same thing Tony... all these supposed "great works of literature" that I haven't read and don't really know that I want to read...
