Bucket List--One Gal's Interpretation

Hearing that someone has a bucket list conjures up images of AARP membership cards (not sure if those even exist) and old Tommy Lee Jones movies.  Wasn't there a movie about a bucket list he starred in?  If not, then I can't really explain the connection, but it works in my mind.  Moving on. 

 I've been thinking about my reading bucket list lately, pondering on books that I've always intended to read but never gotten around to yet.  My top 5 include:

1.  War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
2.  Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
3.  On The Road by Jack Kerouac
4.  A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
5.  The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

What books are on your bucket list?  And are my picks worthy...if not, why not?

On a separate bucket list project, I REALLY REALLY want to ride a mechanical bull.  Anyone know of a book they can recommend that would make an outing to ride one legit?

Anyone else have weird bucket list items that they want to tie to a book?  Or is it just me?



  1. Crystal, this post gave me alot to think about! The #1book on my reading bucket list is Jane Eyre. That's right, I still have not finished it but am happy to report that I did indeed start it. An item on my bucket list i'd like to incorporate into a book pic is a hot air balloon ride. I'd even settle for a blimp ride. :) I wonder how I can make this happen? Hehe
