    Is There Anything I Should Add To My Reading List? I asked around, researched, and complied this list of what people think are the “must reads”. If you think of anything not on the list, please let me know. The list is sorted alphabetical, and if a title starts with “the” it is in the T section. Just so I don’t get the same recommendations over and over again, if someone recommended a book, I put it on the list, even if I’ve already read it. Also, if you see a book that you think really shouldn’t be on the list, let me know. Just no spoilers, please

    So what do you think, guys? Did I miss anything? (My list is too long to put it all here at once, so in a few minutes I’ll “edit” my question and add the rest of it)

    • Curator says:

      Whew, that’s a big (and excellent) list. Here are some more that I would suggest:

      And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
      The Guardian by Nicholas Sparks (other good Sparks books: A Bend in the Road, True Believer, and At First Sight)
      A Murder is Announced by Agatha Christie
      The Story of My Life by Helen Keller
      Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray
      The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins
      Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie
      As You Like It by William Shakespeare

    Is The Meaning Of This Russian Song: “Colonel You Are Not Writing Anything”? This song:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98tEXRIYn5c

    “Polkovnik nikto ne pishet” = “Polkovnik, you are not writing anything”? My language is also Slavic – but not Russian and I know the meaning of “polkovnik” but not sure about the rest. Thank you.

    • Curator says:

      Полковнику никто не пишет. Polkovniku nikto ne pishet. No one writes to the colonel.
      It’s probably a reference to Gabriel García Márquez, who has a novel with this same title (At least in Russian it’s the same).
