you've always intended to read... but never come around to do it... and why. All right, I have two: Ulysses - I've read some James Joyce, and really liked it. But this one, his masterpiece, his magnum opus, I have yet to read. The book weighs twice as much as me, and has really small letters in it... it looks like a real challenge... War and Peace - everybody says it's such a classic and so great. At least people on the net. I've never met a person in real life who could look me into my eyes and say, honestly, they've read the whole thing. And the film based on the book is like 7 hours. Not a good indication.
