Rach has been talking about Russian literature which has me remembering that The Idiot is one of my favorite novels ever ever ever, and that I have been wanting to read The Brothers Karamazov for years but have never actually gotten around to doing so.  This in turn has me thinking of all the other great books that I have, in the past, bought with the hopless ambition that I would one day read them. 

Well. Today is that day.  I have decided to read one of them!  (Really, I just want to make a poll.  But let us pretend for the purposes of said poll that I am actually going to read the book this time.)
Poll #365287 books I own but I have never read!

Which of the following should I read?

Ulysses - James Joyce
11(8.7%)
High Fidelity - Nick Hornby
21(16.5%)
To The Lighthouse - Virginia Woolf
10(7.9%)
The Song of the Lark - Willa Cather
2(1.6%)
A Prayer for Owen Meany - John Irving
10(7.9%)
As Meat Loves Salt - Maria McCann

14(11.0%)
David Copperfield - Charles Dickens

Love In the Time of Cholera - Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Something else?

Is it more important to finish a book you've already started, or to move on to something else completely new?

Finish the first one!
