For one thing, I had read about half of the books on the list already, and had loved them all. (Slaughterhouse-Five led the parade, so I knew they were on the right track.)
For another, the list featured shorter works by people like Turgenev and Woolf that I knew I needed to get to sooner, rather than later.
Next up: TO THE LIGHTHOUSE! I've got it cued up for my next literary walk.Thank you +N. M. Scuri !
