O.k. so I have read 18 of them and attempted to read a few others.

Oliver Twist is my favorite Charles Dickens.

Grapes of Wrath, Great Gatsby, Catcher in the Rye, Wuthering Heights,  and
Tale of Two Cities were all required.  Hamlet was also required.  I loved
Little Women and Ann of Green Gables, and Love Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and
have all of Sherlock Holmes's books. Am reading the Lovely Bone, right now,
via digital talking book.  Loved Harry Potter, and Tolkien's Books and
didn't mind some of the Chronicles of Narnia, did not like Pride and
Prejudice, I guess I am just not that accomplished, smile.  Loved Davinci
Code, and Orwell's books, read both of them. Have read the other Dickens.
Bleak House and David Copperfield both in highschool, plus Dracula, and
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Secret Garden was a favorite of my
friends and mine when we were younger.  You know one I don't see on there
and am disappointed is Frankenstein by Mary Shelly. Oh, and read Moby Dick
after watching the movie, actually fairly close to form, smile, though
definitely not going off on the topic of whaling.  And I did read half of
Les Miserables, got to the part about Waterloo and kind of stopped had to
return the tapes.  But is a good, book, and an awesome musical.  And of
course Alice in Wonderland, smile.
So perhaps more than smile 18.

And I am only as of tomorrow 29.  Smile.

Some of these I do recognize though.

A very intriguing list.

Now, I'll have to actually count...I stopped after 20 (my occasional
competitive streak comes out).

I'm impressed by how eclectic and recent some items on this list are
(Rowlings, Tolkien, Douglas Adams, Khaled Hosseini, Dan Brown, Magaret
Atwood, Frank Herbert, Salman Rushde, Iain Banks, Roald Dahl and many more
I wouldn't expect).  I didn't read a single Harry Potter because we had a
radio show by a woman who read children's books (and did voices and all)
who did the first four books. The one I was assigned in high school that I
never got through was Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad.

Does the "no plays on bookshare" extend to public domain like Shakespeare?
And is there really a single volume called the Complete Works of
Shakespeare?  That would make reading War and Peace child's play by
comparison.

That either says that I'm way older than most of you and have had more
time to read, or that my incredibly anal high school and college English
teachers were right on which books we had to read for their classes.
