Voldy: Yes, I'm back!
It happens every full moon, or something like that.
Kitty even dropped by earlier for a while. There must be something in the air. ::gestures vaguely with a flourish::
However, all of Schizy's books look like really good choices to me, and so do the Chronicles of Narnia.
Oh, how awesome am I?
Ignore everything above that line.
On topic: I've always wanted to read To Kill a Mockingbird. Seems like EVERYONE but me has already read it. XD
Some more modern books:
The Green Mile by Stephen King
-well, EVERYONE should read at least one Stephen King book before they die. XD This is his best, most mature novel, in my opinion. (Though the scary, gore-filled stuff are cool, too.
The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova (something like that)
-pretty entertaining, great story and memorable, relavant writing style (a little dragged out, though)
...Geez, I can't think of anymore modern-ish novels. I hear The Time-Traveller's Wife is supposed to be good. And Memoirs of a Geisha, obviously. (Well, I loved the movie. XD)
Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger
Streetcar Named Desire (screenplay) by Tennessee Williams
like to read before I die:
Beloved by Toni Morrison
Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
Finnigans Wake by James Joyce
The seventh HP book
An Agatha Christie mystery novel, just because
The Color Purple by Alice Walker
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey (?)
Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse (?)
Christ the Lord by Anne Rice
