I can blog too, can you?

I am a huge fan of gmail and I am really getting excited about my new blogger site. It's taken me a few days to learn how to do everything but I'm amazed at how quickly it's come together! I'm thinking there are a lot of possibilities to either bore everyone to tears or have some fun.
My first piece of fun is a survey, yes scroll down and answer my questions. I'm looking forward to your responses and at the end of the month, I'll let you know what I think about The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
This little question is brought on because somehow I missed out on reading a lot of "The Classics" of American Literature when I was in high school. I had the best English teacher ever, but we read all kinds of snippets of books, not lots of whole books. I was always reading plenty on my own but steered away from the classics thinking they were just plain boring. Now that I'm older (and wiser?) I decided to delve into some of the classics. I have to say that I have been surprised by how much I've liked and disliked some of them. My father-in-law was actually a high school English teacher and it's been fun to discuss with him some of the points of the books and hear the details that he remembers about the books he taught about even though it's been ten years since he retired.
I guess I'll have to try to compile a list of some of the classics that I have read recently. I'd love to hear about your favorites as well.
