From the Guardian's silly polls. (I note that many of these books are, trala, Great Classics, by which I mean "frequently required reading." Or are books that people think make them look cool and well-read.)

I've read everything in bold.

Men's "watershed" books. I have read

The Outsider by Albert Camus (though I usually see it translated as "The Stranger.")
Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky
The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald
Brighton Rock by Graham Greene
Catch 22 by Joseph Heller
High Fidelity by Nick Hornby
Ulysses by James Joyce
Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
The Book of Laughter and Forgetting by Milan Kundera
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (for class; I didn't care for it)
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (because everyone told me I should; I don't remember it)
