Have Your Read These Books?--Part 3

Book Meme Part 3: Refer to original post here for complete meme and links.
21. The Hobbit (Tolkien)—This book was first read to me by my father as a bed-time story. I must have been around 6. Another “comfort book.”
22. The Catcher in the Rye (J.D. Salinger)—I tried it; probably I was too young to appreciate it. Since I hated it then, I doubt I’ll ever go back to it.
23. Little Women (Louisa May Alcott)—Along with Little Men, Jo’s Boys was one of my favorites. Also a comfort book.
24. The Lovely Bones (Alice Sebold)—This one gives me a bad feeling. I don’t know why but I’m avoiding it.
25. Life of Pi (Yann Martel)—Never has appealed to me.
26. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (Douglas Adams)—I heard it on tape.
27. Wuthering Heights (Emily Bronte)—Never read. Not sure why not.
28. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (C. S. Lewis)—I read as a kid. I’m currently reading aloud The Magician’s Nephew to my son. Great bed-time story.
29. East of Eden (John Steinbeck)—What can I say? I love Steinbeck.
30. Tuesdays with Morrie (Mitch Albom)—I’m not attracted by this but it has been recommended to me several times. I tend to avoid books that have the “inspirational” label applied to them.

Yep. I've read all, except Tuesdays with Morrie.
I'm thinking I need to get a life. ;^)

I remember reading tuesdays, I think books like that are good when you are in a funk and not enjoying your life. They remind you to lighten up. It was fluffy profound if that makes sense.

I'm afraid I haven't read many on the list. I liked "The Lovely Bones," and "Life of Pi," and loved "East of Eden." I've read but don't recommend "Tuesdays with Morrie." Too saccarine.

Fantastic books! I've read some of them. The Magician's Nephew is one of my very favorites. Little Women is great. Hitchhiker's Guide is fun. take care:)
