Esquire - "The 75 Books Every Man Should Read"

What kind of books do you read? How do you choose what books to read? Is there a recommended reading list that you go by?

Esquire has come up with what they describe as unranked, incomplete and utterly biased list of the greatest works of literature ever published "The 75 Books Every Man Should Read". Every woman too, perhaps.

Going through the list, noticed that I do have a lot to catch up on. Yes, even The Postman Always Rings Twice is on this list which I haven't read but the movie I have watched, and the part that always springs to mind is the scene at the kitchen sinks. hmm..

How many have you read?

  1. Good grief... I have only managed to read three books from that list!

  2. A lot of junk in there IMO. Not terrible, maybe 50%. Knowing which 50% is the key.

  3. LB, not bad. At least you didn't score a fat 0%. LOL!

    PandaB, could it be a matter of "one man's meat....."? Unfortunately, one has to read every book in order to know which ones are the worthwhile 50%.
