I noticed that a lot of people have just started or have not read a lot of these books yet. I'm not judging, but here is a secret to jumpstart your finished books. :) There are quite a few really short (less than 200 pages) books on this list that could be finished in a weekend. I've read most of these and I've read 30% of the list. (Granted I like to read a lot anyways.) I try to read one of the shorter books a month so I can finish this faster.

Here are the ones I found that are short (200 pages or less.)

1. Ethan Frome-Edith Wharton
2. Age of innocence-Edith Wharton
3. The little match girl-Hans C. Anderson
4. Snow white and rose red
5. Howl and other poems-Alan Ginsberg
6. The metamorphosis-Frank Kafka
7. who moved my cheese
8. Rapunzel
9. Candide
10. Waiting for Godot
11. Fletch
12. Emily the strange
13. Goldilocks and the 3 bears
14. Deenie
15. Wizard of oz
16. Eloise
17. Bambi
18. Encyclopedia brown-boy detective
19. The raven-Edgar Allan Poe
20. Snows on Kilimanjaro-Ernest Hemingway

If you know of any more feel free to add them.
