Men of Letters

Steakums asked me tonight what I’m reading. (I need to learn how to do those LJ cuts.)

I’ve got a little stack of books by some of the big names, none of which I’ve read before. In order that I plan to read:
1. Travels with Charley by John Steinbeck.
I’m already into this one. I expected to like it, but I like it even more than I expected.
2. Troilus and Cressida by William Shakespeare
3. The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
4. The Western Lands by William S. Burroughs

With the exception of Shakespeare, I’ve never read anything by the writers mentioned above. I think that’s a pretty surprising thing for me to say about Steinbeck in particular, but it’s true.
