15 responses to “The List

  1. Gosh, I’ve only read 10 of the books. Are you planing to read all these books during your life? Big commitment

  2. Stephanie

    You should have another column there to score them out of 10 of something :)

  3. Good list. But it would be a hard slog to battle through some of those old ones. And why no poetry?

  4. Pingback: 1001 books to read before you die. Or possibly die trying. Where I begin « ireckonthat

  5. Funny, I have this book too and have thought about this challenge. I have a number of those 1001 books, one of my other favourites is the Albums You Must Hear one, I think I have heard about 500 from that and own about a quarter maybe? The books challenge isn’t so easy of course. I think I’ve maybe read close to 100? I know a few years ago I was sitting on 50…
    Anyway, good luck with this, it is an epic task in every sense of the word.

    • You should try it too! I reckon it is going to take me about 30 years to read them all!

      I am at about 50 now, so 5% of the way through, but am gonna keep going. Thanks for the comment :-)

  8. Indigenous

    I’m surprised that you haven’t got ‘The Alexandria Quartet’ by Lawrence Durrell on your list. I’ve read it 5 times and plan to read it again, it’s such a wonderful book.

  9. Luana

    Where did you get this list?

  10. Luana

    Ah, forget my above question. I think this is a really great porject, I might try some of the above books as well! I’ve read Frankenstein, but I think thats it. I’m only in high school now, which means I can get a head start!
