I came across this list from 2009, but presumably most of the list is still relevant.

 

I haven't read a novel for at least 15 years, and probably won't again this year. Therefore, I must be a bit of a literary ignoramus, though I have seen tv and film adaptations of some of those I've missed.

 

Of the 100 on the list, I've read 11.

 

How have you done?

I'm amazed, I've read 21. Although only one of the Rabbit books.

Italo Calvino, there's a writer I should've tried........


To be honest, 'If on a Winter's Night a Traveller' is a bit of a gimmick, although not a bad read overall. The only other book of his I've read is 'Cosmicomics', which was okay, but I never felt tempted to re-read it. Of course, this may be the fault of the translator, rather than the author - it's hard to know with foreign literature.

I may have to kill you for saying that.  That's my desert island book, that is.

I've just remembered; I have read a book twice.

I found a nice hardback edition recently in the second-hand shop, and will getv round to it at some point. I did read it a long time ago, but only remember odd bits of the story heer and there.
