Nuevo Reto (sin límite de tiempo)

Voy a ponerme un reto, un reto a largo plazo y por el mero placer de ponerme un reto (que seguramente, por esto mismo, no realice, pero bueno…). El reto va a ser leer todas las obras que aparecen en la lista de la revista TIME: “.The 100 best English-Language novels from 1923 to the present” .

De momento llevo varias:
-Rebelión en la Granja, de George Orwell.
-El Guardián entre el Centeno, de J.D. Salinger.
-1984, de George Orwell.
-Watchmen, de Alan Moore y Dave Gibbons.

Además, de las diez “All-time Graphic Novels”, también han caído algunas:

-Berlín, Ciudad de Piedras, de Jason Lutes. (una de las mejores novelas gráficas que he leído en mi vida).
-Blankets, de Craig Thompson.
-El Retorno del Caballero Oscuro, de Frank Miller (y que por cierto, no me gustó…).
-Watchmen, de Alan Moore y Dave Gibbons (por supuesto, también está en esta categoría).


Pues ahora quiero seguir con la lista, aunque pienso leérmelas traducidas, pese a que muchos de vosotros me saltéis con que debería leerlas en su versión original, no pienso hacerlo, tengo bastante con tener que leer los manuales de Historia en inglés y que sorprendentemente no han sido traducidos al castellano.

A propósito de la lista, seguro que me encuentro con algún tostonazo, y perdón para aquellos "frikis" del Señor de los Anillos, pero llevo dos intentos fallidos de leérmelo y nada, tal vez a la tercera...
