Gosh, I’ve only read 10 of the books. Are you planing to read all these books during your life? Big commitment
Yep! I have read about 40 of them so far and hopefully will read them all before I take the big dirt nap!
You should have another column there to score them out of 10 of something 🙂
Funny you should say that, I have been thinking about starting to add a score out of 10 on each review. May have to add a column to note it as well 🙂
Good list. But it would be a hard slog to battle through some of those old ones. And why no poetry?
It is going to be hard to get through them all! There is no poetry as I think there is a seperate one for that and this is just novels.

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 🙂

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.
Unfortunately I didn’t create the list so it’s out of my hands 😦
Where did you get this list?
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!
