EW's 100 New Classics

It's interesting how many of these have been made into movies. I wonder if that's the only reason they are on the list, or if the books themselves are worth being classics. Some of these I definitely agree with and some I wonder if it's just the fact that they have movie recognition. As far as the ones I've read, the only one I'm not sure about being a "classic" is The Ruins. It was a good book, but I wouldn't have thought about putting it on a New Classics list myself.

I've read 11 out of 100:

Harry Potter
The Handmaid's Tale
Love in the Time of Cholera
His Dark Materials
The Glass Castle
The Giver
The Kite Runner
The Remains of the Day
The Ruins
The Da Vinci Code

How many and which ones have you read?

I've read only five:
Watchmen, Sandman, On Writing, Neuromancer and the Daily Show book on America.

And while I'm a big fan of Anne Fadiman, The Spirit... is one of those books that just doesn't yang my ying.

Sandman is on my TBR list. I keep meaning to read more of Gaiman. So far I've only read Stardust, which I enjoyed.

lol about your comment on The Spirit.
