Top Ten Most Intimidating Books: 

There aren't many books that intimidate me - sure there are plenty of books that I don't ever want to read, but not because I'm intimidated, I just don't think I'll enjoy them. Long books don't real bother me either - I love to sink my teeth into a long epic novel!

(1) Hamlet by William Shakespear
I think the main reason for finding this intimidating was having to study it for my final exams in high school. I didn't particularly like my teacher, and no matter what I said or wrote about the text I was always wrong, so I was just turned off Hamlet completely.

These books are on my list because I know that I should read them but don't think I'd enjoy them (at least not as much as I probably should)

(2) Moby Dick by Herman Melville

(3) Gone With The Wind by by Margaret Mitchell

(4) Great Expectations by Charles Dickens

(5) Schindler's List by Thomas Keneally

Well those are my Top Ten Five - what books intimidate you?

  2. I read Gone With The Wind (because the you should read it right? reason) and it was actually not that bad. It is sad when bad experiences with people turn you of on books.

  5. # 2-5 are on my list as well. Gone with the Wind is so long though it kind of scares me. lol. I think the longest book I've ever read was about 700 pages and this one is over 1000 pages.

    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Wow! I didn't actually realise it was quite that long! If I knew I was going to enjoy it I probably wouldn't mind, but I just don't think I would like it enough to commit to that many pages!
