Best 100 Novels

I stumbled across this list of the Best 100 Novels a few days ago, and as I was reading it I realized that there were so many books on there that I've always wanted to read but always forget about when I go to the bookstore. So, i've decided to make it my new goal to read all 100 of them before I die..and hopefully well before that--as in, in the next year or two I'm sure there are a few that will bore me entirely too much to complete, but I will worry about that when it gets down to the last handful (I won't be reading them in order of rank--I will probably end up reading them from least misery-inducing to most. I just don't know if I can suffer through The Lord of The Rings trilogy directly after Catcher in the Rye, not to mention before having read The Hobbit, which is 24 novels later)

Obviously they will change from time to time, but I think most of them will remain there for a while and give me a chance to read them. I've already read 15 of them so I already have a little headstart. (I know 15% isn't that great, but eh. That's why I'm doing this thing.) On the plane rides to and from California in the near future I intend to read at least #3. It, along with Slaughterhouse-Five (#30) are two of the ones I've been meaning to read for a while now.

I have a few other upcoming goals planned for the California vacation, but I will mention those later.


As a side note...I just realized that my site has an RSS feed. Badass...I can't believe I didn't notice it before now. Thanks to Brett.
