Pink sand moving through an hourglass that’s sitting on a white surface in front of a white wall that has a black abstract painting hung upon it. I usually weed through my TBR list a few times a year because even though I am a mood reader my tastes do tend to shift over time. Just because I read 3 or 5 or 10 books on topic X last year doesn’t mean I’ll continue with that pattern this year. Sometimes I will, of course, but in other cases my interest in that subject has been satiated and I want to read about other things now.

Here are some books that have been on my TBR list for many years without being read or weeded out. They are all well-known works from the 20th century, so I’m betting they will be excellent reads.

Someday I hope to read all of them…unless my tastes change, of course!

1. Dune (Dune, #1) by Frank Herbert

2.The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy

3. The Salt Eaters by Toni Cade Bambara

4. Sula by Toni Morrison

5. As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner

  1. I picked up Dune in a 2-for-1 sale on Audible last year. Still need to listen to it. Hope you can get to them soon.

  2. Dune is definitely on my TBR list. The problem is, there are so many books and too few hours in a life… 🙂🙂

  3. I need to read Dune, too. It’s on my Classics Club list. Good luck with Faulkner. I’m a southerner and even I find him intimidating! My list is on Kindle titles.

  4. I had The God of Small Things on my shelf from high school right up until my 30s before finally deciding to pass it on. I figured it wouldn’t be hard to find if I regretted that decision. So far, I haven’t. I also have a Toni Morrison on my shelf that I need to get to!

  5. I’ve read Dune and As I Lay Dying. I made it through I think the first couple of dune books, though I never really fully liked them. But that was many years ago, so I can’t remember why. The Faulkner I read is an English assignment in high school. But I found it moving, nevertheless.
