Should I be proud, or ashamed?

Conversation with E about the "50 most significant science fiction novels" meme folks are doing:

Me: I'm kind of embarrassed by some of the holes in my reading. I want to make an effort to read more of the classics of SF and F.
E: And F?
Me: Well, yeah. There's some good fantasy out there, and I want to make sure I've read the good ones.
E: *scoffs* I refuse to make more than a Tolkien effort.

Be careful. Fantasy can be Hobbit-forming.

I was going to respond with a clever pun but the first fantasy authors to come to mind were Michael Moorecock and Niel Gaiman and so I decided that this time discretion may just be the better part of valor.
