1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die

Ok, ok, technically they’re the books in “1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die”, several editions, which brings us to a total list of about 1200 books.

Books I’ve read are in bold, books I started and never finished are in italics. There’s 3 or 4 on the list that I’ve read and barely recall… Yeah… For some it’s been awhile.

I’m starting to think of the 1001 Books list as a sort of internet meme, no?
