I've Read Six of Them

I can only imagine what I might have become if I'd read the other two.

  1. Only one. Definitely not my kind of books. McTeague was the one about the dentist right. If not, maybe none.

  2. Yes, McTeague was the dentist. I wrote my master's thesis on Frank Norris, so I've read all his novels and most of his shorter works.

    I saw GREED - does that count?

    I've read two. I'm not likely to read the rest.

  4. Four--including McTeague--and I doubt I'll get around to the others.

  5. Zero, but I read a different book by one of the authors.

  6. I've read four. I'd only recommend STEPS now. Kosinski's first three books were great .

  7. Agree about Kosinski. I really liked those books, no matter who wrote them.

  8. I've read McTeague for a university course. I mostly liked it. Doubt I'd have read it if it weren't for that course though.
