So here, for your consideration, are a few titles that I have been told I must read, but have not yet.
"Jitterbug Perfume" by Tom Robbins.
"Jane Eyre" Charlotte Brontee (yep, I'm a loser. Bad lit. major)
"The Silent Gondeliers" William Goldman
The first Travis Magee book: (I have forgotten the title) John Macdonald
this list may be added to in the future.
