Worth Stealing

“What books are you afraid to re-read?” is the question on today’s “Short Stack,” a blog from the staff of the Washington Post Book World. Evelyn Small kicks off the discussion with her list of five titles, including Wuthering Heights. One commenter encourages her to stay away from it — “Heathcliff was basically an abusive husband, father, and father-in-law, and not a single character was appealing.” I suspect this is exactly why Evelyn was afraid of it.

It’s a fun question that obviously got people thinking — worth stealing if you’re looking for survey questions for your library Web site.
