Uh, folks. . .

Carleton College's alumni magazine published an amusing compilation of Top 10 lists -- favorite blogs, films, poems, iconic regional structures, apps, and so forth. The one that baffled me was "Must-Read Classics". At number 6, they list Moby Dick by Herman Melville and go on to say:

We must admit that we've never read Moby-Dick all the way through, but popular culture is filled with references to this legendary book.

Which makes me wonder. How exactly is this a "must-read" book?*


* Does anyone know someone, other than a professor of English or English major, who has read it all the way through?
