Oh--and my own reading list!

So here's what else I might be reading this summer. Bolded are the ones I've already finished, whether recently or simply in the past few years. This particular list was compiled by myself and three friends, when we were on a van ride back from a college honors-program outing. Therefore it's dubbed the "reading list for honors nerds." :-D Seriously, we were going to read some of them over the summer and discuss them. There's a whole Facebook group for this, so we have access to the list and can toss ideas back and forth about adding books.

I hereby officially file and objection to some of the afor mentioned books; stating that they are not worth the trouble of reading and that they should, as such, be removed from said list.

But: The Count of Monte Cristo: One of my favorite books. Also recommended: The Black Tulip, by the same author.

Haha, m, I'm sure you would have objections to some of them. I probably won't get to a few of them myself (ever). :-D

EM: Ah, I've seen a couple movie versions of it, and I liked them, so I'm rather looking forward to Count of Monte Cristo. Not sure if I'll read that this summer or later, though.
