When I graduated from the English department at SJSU, I was given a "guilt list" along with my diploma. This intimidating scroll consisted of a long list of titles that I, as an English major, should read before I die. Working at a library, this list seems even more compulsory since I am surrounded by these classic and influential titles on a daily basis. Yet there are many books on this guilt list that I am ashamed to admit I have not read. Even if we do not have a printed "guilt list" of titles taunting us, most readers have a list in their minds of books they feel they really should have read by now. Some of us at Campbell have made a new year's resolution to cross at least one of those titles off of our to-read list this year. Here is a collage of our new year's reading resolutions.
