I have been planning some of my future reading and I cannot decide between these books which one I want to read next. I plan on eventually reading them all, I already own each of these books, but which one should be the first I pick up I am on the fence about.
So I ask you to help make the choice for me.
The Wings of a Dove by Henry James: It has been a while since I have read any James, and I really enjoy his writing. I have been feeling a bit in the mood for James again.
Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller: I am not really that familair with Miller and haven't read anything of his, but what I have heard of this book it sounds like it could be interesting and I am intrigued.
Pale Fire by Nabokov: I thought this one sounded interesting and unconventional, I am quite curious about it, and I think it may have been on my shelf the longest. But I now have some reservations after having read Lolita, which I must admit for whatever reason I failed to be as enthralled by the narration as many other people.
Ragtime by E.L. Doctrow: When I was in high school I read Billybathgate and loved it, I have not since then got around to reading any more of Doctrow's work but I would like to.
Lord Jim by Joseph Conrad: I attempted to read this once before and stopped half-way through. I found it difficult to get into and hard to follow, but after having successfully read Heart of Darkness and surprisingly enjoyed it I have decided to revisit this one and give it another chance, but I have still been reluctant to acutally bring myself to pick it up again.
