So, the BBC put out the BBC's top 21 'Big Reads'. I have a new goal...to read them all!
By brother-in-law's blog gave me the idea...I love books, and I have intended to read or started to read every book on this list, but I am the worst person ever for time management and I have a shocking habit of starting 5 books at once, and subsequently drowning in literature and university readings, never finishing any of them!
The ones highlighted in orange, I have already read. The ones in green, I have started but ever finished...

1. The Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien
2. Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen
3. His Dark Materials, Philip Pullman
4. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams
5. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, JK Rowling
6. To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee
7. Winnie the Pooh, AA Milne
8. Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell
9. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, CS Lewis
10. Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë
11. Catch-22, Joseph Heller
12. Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë
13. Birdsong, Sebastian Faulks
14. Rebecca, Daphne du Maurier
15. The Catcher in the Rye, JD Salinger
16. The Wind in the Willows, Kenneth Grahame
17. Great Expectations, Charles Dickens
18. Little Women, Louisa May Alcott
19. Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, Louis de Bernieres
20. War and Peace, Leo Tolstoy

By the time summer is over, I will have read them all. Excited!
