Canon Culling

There is so much out there to read and so little time. And very few of us, myself included, have come even close to covering the (mythical) canon of books that fill us with guilt for not having cracked their spines. The Second Pass has helpfully culled ten books from the canon and decided that you do not, in fact, need to read them. naturally there will be lots of debate as to their choices, but I think the larger point is that we do not have to feel bad about not reading or not liking books that have gotten the stamp of approval from whoever it is that establishes these sorts of things.
