The Great Books List

Via Pejmanesque I found this list of works at the College Board 101 Great Books List (Recommended). Over the last few weeks, various bloggers of all forms, shapes and sizes have been listing the books that they have read (note to Mr. Green: Cliff's Notes do not count).

I'll put my selections in the Extended Section along with links to similar posts of other bloggers to see which Great Books they've consumed.

The books that I have read are in bold (and mostly due to the most incredible High School English Teacher of All Time - Judy Bunch - she ROCKS!).

Note: At first, I wasn't going to turn this into a link fest, but, then, after all, I am the Paratrooper of Love so I linked away (some of these blogs might not appreciate this site, either). Check out some of these blogs (especially, if you haven't read any of them before) - you might find something that you like.
