So I found this list of 1001 books you "must" read before you die, "1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die" | Listology. The list is actually taken from: "1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die: A Comprehensive Reference Source, Chronicling the History of the Novel Preface by Peter Ackroyd, General Editor Peter Boxall ISBN 1-84403-417-8" Anyway, I thought it'd be interesting to see how many of these books we've all read. I am at the incredible amount of...12! :tongue: My list includes: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time – Mark Haddon The English Patient – Michael Ondaatje The Bell Jar – Sylvia Plath To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee The Lord of the Rings – J.R.R. Tolkien The Old Man and the Sea – Ernest Hemingway The Catcher in the Rye – J.D. Salinger The Little Prince – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (in it's original French) The Hobbit – J.R.R. Tolkien The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald Wuthering Heights – Emily Brontë The Hunchback of Notre Dame – Victor Hugo (in it's original French) Obviously you don't have to list your books if you have a significantly larger number than I do. I hope to read them all one day, and luckily for me, I found several of the books on this list at a used book store. I have about 7 lined up to read as of right now. So, how "well-read" are you?
