John Burns Hmmm. Was it a mistake for you to publish this in a list that other users could vote on?

Apparently! I'm new to goodreads...I didn't know. Could you see my original listing? (Catcher in the Rye was my #1 pick.)

John Burns Yeah you can see ppls votes by clicking on their names here. All quiet on the western front, ham on rye and mockingbird are 3 fantastic novels, particularly mockingbird as its a really beautiful book that not many people have read.

If you like ham on rye you should try Ask the Dust which is a great book, very similar and had a big influence on bukowski. If you like mockingbird you should try Replay which similarly deals with the themes of loneliness and romance through a sci-fi setup.

Incidentally i wouldnt bother with The Time Traveler's Wife if i were you. It's unquestionably the worst book i've ever read.

Jessup I know, Mockingbird is amazing! I tried to look for it at Barnes & Noble, but it is out of print. Thanks for the tip - I will definitely read Ask the Dust - I LOVE all things Bukowski, especially his poetry. I have read Replay and I loved it. You have good taste!

Barbara Can this be books I've loved instead of My Top Ten? I can't limit My Top to only Ten.
