Got my new Newsweek today and turned directly to the article : WHAT TO READ NOW: AND WHY!.
Read it here:http://www.newsweek.com/id/204300
I was chagrined to find that of the 50 books "I should of read" I had read exact 1/3 of one. They were counting Twain's three Mississippi books as one. I had read Huck..Finn.
But I had seen three as movies: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, Frankenstein , and The Bear.
I've always thought of myself as a reader, but geez many of these essential books for these times I had never heard of much less read.
There are three books on my table next to the chair I read in. They are The Spear of Destiny, The Gnostic Paul, and Henry Stanley's book about seeking Livingston (although that one is in German which i do not understand, but that's another story). But still this Issue of Newsweek is making me feel well out of it.
So dear blog "readers" which of the books on the magic list have you read?
