1001 Books Challenge

There is a book called 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die. I read it back when it was first released and since then there have been one or two revised and updated editions. The list below is that list – now well over 1000 titles – in its entirety (as of 2012).

Always one for a challenge, I thought I would keep an open tally as to how my well I’m making my way through the list. For your reference:

Strikethrough – finished
Red - abandoned/paused
