By the way, THIS is the list I've been working my way through. I've currently read 69/1001 of the books (and own maybe 30 of the others) and if my (calculator's) calculations are correct, that's only 7% completed and rather a grim statistic. I don't really think I'll have missed out on much if I never read any of the other books on this list, but it bugs me that there are literally hundreds of books there that I've always meant to read. So, I will. In time. And I may even write about them on this blog.
How many have you read?!
