Booking Through Thursday

We’ve all seen the lists, we’ve all thought, “I should really read that someday,” but for all of us, there are still books on “The List” that we haven’t actually gotten around to reading. Even though we know they’re fabulous. Even though we know that we’ll like them. Or that we’ll learn from them. Or just that they’re supposed to be worthy. We just … haven’t gotten around to them yet.

What’s the best book that YOU haven’t read yet?

Probably War and Peace. I got the new translation when it came out last year (in hardcover even) and started but then my attention drifted, and I haven't finished. I even started a separate blog to document reading it, and joined a Yahoo group of readers as well. I think I put too much pressure on myself, and when I got busy with reviews and work stuff it just got lost in the shuffle. Maybe this summer I'll give it another shot.
