A quick list of books which I feel I should have read but somehow haven’t … Lazy? Unmotivated? Threatened by the denseness of the prose? All of the above? 🙂 I’d say the latter.
1. The Seagull – Chekhov. I’ve seen this performed and neither the performance nor the performers provoked any desire in me to open my copy of the play.
2. A book on how to drought-proof my garden. The poor garden already looks pathetic and books like this make me alternately angry and sad. I don’t need any more of that.
3. Pamela. Yes, that novel. The one from centuries past where the maid is pestered by the aristocrat and gives up her virginity only after her wedding to the same.
4. Man and Superman – George Bernard Shaw.
