Literary Blog Hop March 17-20

  The Literary Blog Hop is hosted at The Blue Bookcase.  This week’s question:

What one literary work must you read before you die?
 
  If you could see my bookshelves, I have a lot of books that I want to read before I die (there are so many that my husband jokes that I’ll die first).  Whether any of them are “must” reads might be open to interpretation, though; normally if there is I book I am eager to read I do so right away.
 
  What I would like to do, though, is take a novel I’ve enjoyed – Les Miserables or The Elegance of the Hedgehog, for example – and be able to read, understand, and enjoy it in French.  As I’m refreshing my skills in the language I’ve started reading small pieces — magazine articles mostly, as well as some stuff on the Internet — but I have some work to do before I can be comfortable reading a complete novel.  However, once I do have more confidence in my ability I think that the familiarity I have with these stories will be a great help WHEN I tackle them in their original language.
  And then when that’s done I can start accumulating books in a second language!  My husband will be so thrilled……..
  What work is on your literary bucket list?
