1001 Books You Have to Read Before You Die
« Reply #3 on: June 25, 2007, 08:33:16 PM »
Well there goes the next 20 years of my life.:lol:


Seriously, I'm a pretty avid reader and I've only read probably 100-150 of those titles.

I'd love to meet the person who had read the entire list. They would definitely have to have some speed reading capabilities.:p

Wow, that list is crazy long. I'm also an avid reader and I definitely haven't read more than half of those. Who is booboo? Where did the list come from?

And are they in order of "importance?" Because I've read the first few on the list and I wouldn't say they're the best books ever; some of my favorites are a lot further down.

A pitiful 44 out of 1001.  Better quit my job now and make a start on the other 957!

I think they are ordered by age, not by which book is "best".

I thought it was disappointing that people like Astrid Lindgren and Roald Dahl didn't get any books on the list, when there are so many writers that have a whole bunch of books on it.

An article about the list:

I use to love reading but i do not have the time anymore. I only do it when i go abroad either on work or as vacation. However could anyone recommened some really really good books that i could buy? Please leave out any sci-fi or anything like that. The 6th on the list being The Sea looks intresting! Anyone read it?

Many Thanks

I must have missed this post originally but I feel much smaller and less manly now that I've seen it.  Who the hell is this guy anyway?  Has he ever left his house do you s'pose?  

If you're not into sci-fi Simon, next time you go on vacation you should check out John Irving or Brett Easton Ellis provided you haven't all ready.  Irving's "A Prayer for Owen Meany" is extraordinary and it's on this list, I believe.
