I love lists..

I don't think it is any secret that I love lists. Making lists, reading lists, thinking about lists.. I just love them. I have many lists when it comes to reading and they are never ending. I also like to find lists of books other people have made and then adjust my own lists. I found a really neat list tonight.. 14 must read books for the college rebel.. let's take a look...

14 must read books for the college rebel..

Steal this Book - Alice Hoffman (never heard of it, never read it.. sounds intriguing..)
The Chomsky Reader - Noam Chomsky (I'm sad to say I don't think I've ever read anything by Chomsky I need to add him to my TBR list)
A People's History of the United States - Howard Zinn (I haven't read the whole thing but I have skimmed it every time I go to B&N)
The Anarchist Cookbook - William Powel (I don't think I need to read this one)
Human, All Too Human - Friedrich Neitzsche ( semi-interested in this)
Complete Works - Arthur Rimbaud (Um no)
Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas - Hunter S. Thompson (Want to read this)
The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath (Read it, it was okay, not all in love with it like some people)
The Satontic Bible - Anton LaVey ( no thank you)
Factotum - Charles Bukowski (want to read it..)
Siddhartha - Herman Hesse (ehhh no)
Steppenwolf - Herman Hesse (nooo)
Slaughterhouse-Five - Kurt Vonneget (LOVED IT.. I was the only girl in my lit class that did enjoy this one.. and I think one of the only reading selections the guys liked..)
Naked Lunch - William S. Burroughs (kinda want to read it..)

What I think this list says about me, is that I make a very very lame college reading rebel. :) What about you? Have you read any of theses? Want to read any of them?

The link this is from is quite hilarious with a short writing description of the books.. I think my favorite is describing The Bell Jar as "Emo Girls Bible" LOVE.

I also love lists.

I've read Bell Jar and Slaughterhouse Five (more than once) and I adored them both.

Sylvia Plath is my hero, except for the head in the oven part, and Vonnegut was a genius. I also loved Breakfast of Champions.

I think I will do a bloggy list of my own tomorrow. :)
