    I've been re-reading some books I was assigned while I was in High School.
    Just finished Great Gatsby not too long ago, I enjoyed it. Might have to dig into some Tolstoy this fall.

    What I see is your regular textbook "best of" list. All literary canon here.

    I like some of these titles, but my list would probably point to 10 others.

    What Vrankol said. That list is way too safe.

    Besides, everyone knows that King Lear > Hamlet. ;-)

    And to think...I have wasted my life reading Stephen King, Watership Down and cereal boxes.
