alright, so im making this booklist see? it's a list for people to take reference from, add to, check off of, whatever. it's a booklist of knowit or else. You know those books, that come up in analogies, and are referenced in other novels. You know, the classics, the good
stuff. The books any educated nerd, or common smart alack has read? well im gonna read em all, every single one, then when im done, i turn to the great big world of books people havent'
heard of, or don't
already know how it's going to end. The thing is, google is not giving very many lists to work with here. I got one list, 1001 books long, but there are so many books on it, that i've never heard of before in my life! and futhermore, there are books I have
read, that i know
are good, but that aren't on the list. But no matter, we have to start somewhere. So here's what I'm proposing, lets take the starting list (which i have some what grown to resent ->
) and lets add to it, edit it, make it our own. See, i know what your thinking, "but lydia, i googled a booklist of 1001 books to read, and they already made a booklist, it was put together by all these scholars, and teachers and stuff" yeah, i know. But i think we should make one ourselves, one that we don't have to pay for, one that was put together by the people of the ning, and one that other nerdfighters might actually use!!
so i'll be reading the comments, and i'll be updating the list. To check for a book, click ctrl + f, to 'find' a book. And if anyone knows how to make a pdf file, or something of that sort, then i'll put the list up, and ya'll can have access to it as i edit it, and add to it, and all that.
And a note about book suggestions. I'm not talking about books that are necesarrily all that enjoyable, or that are super happy-go-lucky and fun to read (like the clique series, those kind of books are like soap operas) no i mean ones that make on think, that are important, influential. This list is the buildin blocks. the basics. You know, i for one don't think people should be running off reading a bunch of modern novels, if you don't know who big brother is. Or grabbing a bunch of love novels by nicholas sparks if you've never read jane eyre or pride and prejiduce (sp :P)
I'm asking for your brain power guys, show me what you've got up there.
