Harvard, What's With All The Faulkner?

Recently, at the suggestion of a college pal, I joined a LiveJournal community, called readplease. Mainly I skim the book titles that people mention to see if anything sticks out to me. I heart reading, so I was excited to see that someone posted a top 100 books of the 20th century list. Apparently, this was compiled by Harvard. My only real question is: Why so much Faulkner that I will never ever ever read after my recent encounter with his writing.

Here's the list. I've read 23 of the ones listed. And some other lists from Random House. Like my roommate, I generally enjoy a good list.
