Here are five books I’ve always wanted to read but, for some reason or another, haven’t yet, in approximately the order I desire to do so. (And because there are two ties, I’m including seven. Bonus!)
- Tie: The Catcher in the Rye — J.D. Salinger
The Razor’s Edge — W. Somerset Maugham
- Tie: Fahrenheit 451 — Ray Bradbury
Slaughterhouse-Five — Kurt Vonnegut
- The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn — Mark Twain
- A Tale of Two Cities — Charles Dickens
- Ulysses — James Joyce

Catcher was one of my favorite assigned readings, though I’m not sure it would hold up as an adult. Fahrenheit was at the bottom, though it’s probably more enjoyable it at this point in my life, with advent of the screens we carry and the plight of the print industry. If you’re going to read it, avoid watching the movie first – in fact, I’d avoid watching the movie at all. Tale and Ulysses are on my list as well.
You forget “the Power of Myth” and “Myths to Live By”, Joseph Campbell
