"1001 Book You Must Read Before You Die: Revised & Updated Edition" by Peter Boxall
My mother was visiting, and we went through the book counting the titles we have read. She beat me, of course, but I think we both did pretty well. This updated version knocks me down to 36 books read, as some books from the original list were removed to make room for more recently published works. My plan is to take down the "1001 Books" page I have on this site and then only list the books that I have read. I am going to get all nerdy and make a spreadsheet of all the titles for myself, but I don't feel comfortable putting the whole list on my page (copyright laws and such). While this list is not going to dictate what I read from now on, I have to admit a certain amount of giddiness knowing that I'm going to check off several titles in the next year!
