Get out your reading lists and a pencil…

Because I’m about to add to those lists. Thanks to The Book Bench (the books section of The New Yorker magazine) and Random House’s twitter feed, I just skipped through a slideshow of books over at The Guardian that are now all on my “To-read” list.

There are modern books, and one from H.G. Wells, and lots in between. They’re calling them the “10 Best Neglected Literary Classics.” Interesting how so many of them feature young women living with dreary, oppressive old fathers, being crushed under the weight of duty and the general dullness of life. I can’t embed the slide show here, but go check it out, it’s short and sweet and definitely got some gems in there.
