I promised myself I wouldn't get drawn into this, but...I've read the following:

Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut
1984 by George Orwell
The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
For Whom the Bell Tolls by Ernest Hemingway
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
Call of the Wild by Jack London
Swiss Family Robinson by Johann David Wyss
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
Lord of the Flies by William Golding
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West by Cormac McCarthy
Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller
The Naked and The Dead by Norman Mailer
Animal Farm by George Orwell
Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs

A third of the list, which is probably not too bad for a non-American. Can I claim honourary Manliness status?
