I'm glad to see East of Eden on your list. I'm looking forward to reading it.

What a wonderful question to ponder. I often say to someone who's reading a book that I loved "I envy you being able to read this for the first time."

Thanks for stopping by Summit Musings earlier.

I am embarrassed to say that I still haven't read The Bell Jar. The Kite Runner is one of my all-time favorites though!

Other than the Harry Potter books, I don't think I've read any of the books on your list... Which means I'm looking forward to some awesome, mindblowing first reads in the future :) YAY!
Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Catch 22 was one of my favorites. Nothing like hearing the story, any story, for the first time.

East of Eden and Gulliver's Travels were both great first reading experiences for me, and I would revisit them for sure.


Come visit my list at The Scarlet Letter.
