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.
