Lol. There are a lot of books on that list that I have either read and enjoyed immensely or want to read myself.

I separated the ones I feel I should read from the ones I really want to (mostly because the ones I really want to are all romance novels or fantasy or generally brain-fluff). I think I'll probably love them all equally in the end (so long as I can get most of them from the library...)

That is an awesome list, Robert Grave's Greek myths is really good, I enjoy his writing immensely. Blind Assassin is rated as one of my favourite Margaret Atwood books, it has a very well layered story and it draws you in. Although I would recommend reading it when you have a weekend to dedicate to it.

We have a copy at home and [livejournal.com profile] just_marzipan is always poking me to read something by Graves. I like Atwood, though, and I do intend to read more by her. I keep going and re-reading crap, though, instead of actually striking things out on this list.
