What Haven’t You Read?

Summer break is in full swing, and some of us use this time to tackle a summer reading list.  Is there a book you’ve tried to read, again and again, but have never managed to get through?  Are you trying to read certain books just because you feel obligated to read them?

Dr. Colleen Clemens, a literary scholar at KU, has written a blog post about the books she hasn’t read.  Check it out and think about the reasons you have for reading (or not reading) the “great books.” What do you learn from them, and what do you learn from important books that aren’t in the canon (yet)?
