.. and no, I'm not talking about Himself. I'm talking about the latest Penguin Newsletter listing their picks for the top 10 "essential" books. I don't feel too bad - I'm 5 for 10.

I'd like to see that list, but tonight LJ is giving me a 'page not found' error. Maybe tomorrow it will cooperate. Either that or Himself the Penguin has hidden it for his own nefarious purposes.

Okay - I fixed that. Apparently I was too smart for my own good.

Thanks for fixing the list!

No, to Moby Dick, though I've started it three different times.

No, to Metamorphosis.

And a partial to Walden. I've probably read 2/3 of it over the years, but never the whole thing.

The rest I've read, some more than once...or even twice...

7 for 10 - you're a better man than I am, Gunga Din. Oh wait - that wasn't even on The List !!

Kipling SHOULD have been on that list. What's up with Penguin People anyway????
