What book haven’t you read?

A few days ago Nathan Bransford did a post asking what book are you embarrassed not to have read.  The answers varied from Shakespeare, to Austen, to Lord of the Rings (which Nathan himself has never read!!!).  I didn’t post a comment over there, but it kind of got me thinking.  I’ve come to the conlcusion that there are lots of things I should have read, or should read in the future, particularly the classics.  I read a ton of them in high school and even more in college, where I minored in English.  Since then, I don’t think I’ve read one.  I heartily admit that now I read entirely for fun and entertainment.  I know, I know, think of all the great literature.  BUT, now I have three kids, a house, homework to help with, dinner, laundry, you know…and I need to read for fun.  It’s one of my only breaks.  So, while those classics will always be out there, let’s face it, I probably won’t read a ton of them.
