1001 books

1001 books you must read before you die” is a well know list/book.

I want to try to read all of them. There is one problem though; it has been edited several times (2008, 2010, 2012). The list below is the 2006 version. If someone knows of books that are a part of the list(s), that I don’t have here (for instance from some of the other editions), feel free to let med know 🙂

(If a book has a * (xx) in front of the title, it’s not on the original 2006 list.)

And yes, I’m a librarian at heart, that’s why it’s in alphabetical order 🙂

If the title is written in bold, I’ve read the book. If I have reviewed the book, I ‘ve linked to the review.
