Wow, I cannot believe you have never read "To Kill A Mockingbird", Alex. Get yourself a copy right away!

I know, right?! I saw the movie though. Does that sorta count?
I also saw Jane Eyre on Broadway. That counts.

As much as I love Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch, the book is better. The film left a lot out.

I'm 100% with you on "Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man." I was assigned to read that in the fall semester and I just couldn't fucking stand it. FUCK JAMES JOYCE!!!

Out of all of those I think Frankenstein is my favorite. :)

Wilde, Oscar - The Picture of Dorian Gray - nope, but I love Our Town

Our Town was written by Thornton Wilder, not Oscar Wilde.

I'm reading this years later, and I only noticed that now. This isn't the first time I've messed that up. Oops.
