We’ve all seen the lists, we’ve all thought, “I should really read that someday,” but for all of us, there are still books on “The List” that we haven’t actually gotten around to reading. Even though we know they’re fabulous. Even though we know that we’ll like them. Or that we’ll learn from them. Or just that they’re supposed to be worthy. We just … haven’t gotten around to them yet.
What’s the best book that YOU haven’t read yet?
This is a tough, tough question. There are any number of completely fabulous books that I haven’t read. Because I cannot immediately think of all of the wonderful books I haven’t read off the top of my head, I needed some help. I went into my LibraryThing catalog and first pulled up all the books on my wishlist, then all of the book I currently have in my TBR pile; in other words, books that I have indicated that I want to read, but haven’t actually gotten around to yet.
I think that, out of these books, the best book that I haven’t read is probably “A Prayer For Owen Meany.” So many people have told me that they absolutely love this book, or that it is their favorite book. I mooched it from someone, but it is now languishing on my shelves. Am I right? Am I completely missing out because I haven’t read “A Prayer For Owen Meany?” Or is there some other book in my wishlist or TBR pile that is even better, that should be a higher priority? I’d also love to know what the best book is that you haven’t read yet and what makes you think it is the best?
