30-Day Book Challenge: Day 23

Day 23 – A book I've wanted to read for a long time but still haven’t

The Great Gatsby. This is one of those books you would think I would have had to read in high school, but that was not the case. So it's remained on my to-read list for a long time, mostly by virtue of being a classic, but also because there are so many references to The Great Gatsby in other literature. For example, I read The Double Bind a few years ago and pretty much learned the whole Gatsby story through reading that novel but was still quite confused by some things. It's my plan to finally The Great Gatsby after I finish Stieg Larsson's trilogy, but who knows what will come up in the meantime.
