Book List

At book club this evening someone brought up this list. I have been looking for ways to celebrate my upcoming 30th birthday (in January of 2012) and love the idea of reading 30 of the most influential/important/best written books of all time. However, I don't necessarily agree that all of the books on the list deserve to be there. So I decided to create my own list and I'm looking for suggestions.

What book (or books) would you include?


  1. Heidi-

    I am so with you on this! I want to do it too, but I dont fully you probably got tonight. However, here are a few I think need to be added:

    anna karenina
    pride and prejudice
    something by marcel proust
    count of monte christo...maybe, anyways, I am in if we come up with a more "well rounded" list. :)

  2. The Last Lecture- loved the book. Want to re-read it every few years.

  3. I will totally try to do this with you guys too. I only have a year and 3 months though. It will probably take me longer than 30. But I think you should add the book we just read
    A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.
    Good luck and let me know.
