Below is the freshman reading list in the Humanities for all Columbia College students.
Did you graduate from college and never read any of these books? How shameful (for both you and your college).
Haven't read them all? Me neither. But I'm not exactly proud of not having read Cervantes; in fact, I'm vaguely ashamed of it. (Not too ashamed not to confess it, of course, since it allows me to brag about having read the rest of the lot.) All of them will reward slow, repeated re-readings, of course. Gotta get on that.
