Your #5 there is one of my ALLTIME FAVORITES! Even though I loved Martian Chronicles by Bradbury better... :) Nineteen Eighty Four is downright depressing, bu it is one of those books that I am glad I read, anyway.

Thank you for following my blog. I have also added yours as one to follow. I look forward to seeing what you're reading and what you think of it.

Hey, great selection you've got there! 1, 3 4 and your bonus are some of my favourites. I have been trying to get around to Farenheit 451 for a while, but just haven't made the time. Thanks for the reminder.

If you're interested, I have a review for Catch-22 here .

Happy Reading!

Lawanda,
yeah I am pretty excited to get to read #5, and I totally get what your saying about being glad to have read a book even if its not the greatest... I feel that way about a lot of classics and more advanced type books.

PeachyTO:
I have actually had the Great Gatsby in my possession for a really long time, just haven't gotten around to it which is pretty sad considering how small it is lol.

Thanks for signing up for the challenge, Jessica! I've read a handful of your choices and really enjoyed all of them (although Moby Dick took some brain power! Worth it, though). :) Enjoy.
