Bookish come up with a subject and I will try to find 10 results combined with that weeks topic.
This weeks topic is The Top Ten Most Intimidating Books (might be intimated by size, content, that everyone else loves it but you are sure you won't etc). I had a hard time with this one. Though I know I am reluctant in picking up a lot of books there are situations in which I can be tricked into reading them anyhow. I did come up with some things though but it probably wont make up for a top ten.
1. The RussiansThere are some great books written by Russian authors especially the 19th century brought along a lot of big Russian titles. Not only in name but also in pages. I did try Anna Karenina but got bored and am still eying a few of the others by Dostoyevsky and Pushkin but they are not high on my list and will certainly not be my first choices.
2. The PhilosophersWe go to the beach and drag along some work by Nietzsche.. well that is not me. I read to relax and though I do not mind if a book has a subject that makes me think or consider situations I do not really look for that. And yes I find it intimidating that people do think those books are the right books for the beach.
And after two weeks considering these are there things I came up with on this subject. Which makes me very curious about the lists of you guys to see what would intimidate you so I can see what I missed.
