  1. I read Dracula for Classic that Scares You. (It wasn't scary :D lol)
    I chose this because it was for some reason an intimidating title. I'd never even picked it up before so it simply must have been the idea of the "original" vampire story that was 'scary'.

  2. I finally tacked Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand (1,168 pages long). It took me a few weeks, but I'm glad I stuck with it. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Rand developed some strong characters (most notably, Dagny Taggart, one of the strongest women characters I've discovered in literature). Even though this is a philosophical/political book, the underlying story is great!
