"Gap" Books

Nathan Bransford, a literary agent, had a fun post about "gap" books, those books that everyone else has read and you feel lost when they come up in conversation.  The list reads like the 100 books that must be read before you die.  I haven't got around to reading a lot of the classics, but I had read a few that others missed - like To Kill a Mockingbird and Lord of the FliesTwilight was mentioned, but I don't have a desire to read that one.  There were several that I've never even heard of so I don't feel like I missing out there. 

Since my kiddos are such big readers, their conversations are the ones I'm left out of if I haven't read the book.  I'd have to say my biggest "gap" books right now is Hunger Games and the Ranger's Apprentice series.  (I'm glad I finally read The Work and the Glory Series otherwise it would have to be on the list!)
