10. Underworld by Don DeLillo: I have read half of this book three times, but always feel compelled to start at the beginning with each reread.
9. Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon: We read this for my book club right before G was born. I got about 250 pages (or 1/4 of the way) in. I really want to devote the time to the book that it deserves, and my third trimester was not that time.
8. Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace: Are you sensing a theme? REALLLY long books might not be my thing.
7. Catch 22 by Joseph Heller: I think I got the gist of this one, but I would like read the whole thing.
6. The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy: This was one of the last books on MA exam study list. I was pretty sure that no one was going to ask me about it, but I wanted to finish anyway...and I didn't.
5. Middlemarch by George Eliot: I have actually read this all the way through once. I was going to read it again for a class in graduate school, and just didn't make it through the second read. I would still like to return to it.
4. Bleak House by Charles Dickens: And again, long books, not my thing. I usually say I read this, because I think I made it to the end, but there was a lot of skimming/speed reading involved...
I can't think of a top three, but this is a robust TBR. What books did you start and life just got in the way?
