i generally read plays/poetry/articles/children's books (suck it)/biographies rather than novels, so my list is appropriately lame. forgive me. i know this is pretty backwards, as novels are generally the first choice for most readers. im not sure why i dont read more.

pave: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

I have some trouble with the language, you know, I read Spanish versions. So I used the google to translate. If you see non correct names, tell me.

Sid_Vicious_24: Crime and Punishment, The Mystery of the Yellow Room, Harry Potter Series*, 1984, The Lord of the Flies, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Don Quixote, Los vecinos mueren en las novelas**, In Cold Blood, The Perfume of the Lady in Black.

*it would be boring if I had to put them one by one
**this is argie, I couldn't find an official English name

I have to say this list is very changeable, but it looks fine right now.

I'd prefer a favourite books or at least a non-fiction database cause I read way more of that.

The Sound and the Fury (Willy Faulks); In Search of Lost Time (Proust); The Brothers Karamazov (Dostoevsky); Ulysses (Joyce); Don Quixote (Cervantes); Catch 22 (Heller); Notes From Underground (Dostoevsky); Crime and Puninshment (Dostoevsky); Lord of the Rings (Tolkein); 1984/Animal Farm (Orwell)

By this, and facebook, i can tell that A.) I need to finish some Tolstoy, and probably read more Dos other than those three B.) Me and pnoom have some of the same taste in books, too, so i should probably read The plague, more kafka, kafka on the shore, and some vonnegut. C.) Why do i prefer oldies to anything modern? Catch 22 being the newest on my top ten? Come onnnnn
