Librarything's list is already better. I added a couple of Chinese books and Candide.
The list has reminded me of dozens of books I've been 'meaning to read' for decades - and added one or two new ones ... so many books, so little time ...
Strike that - worked it out.
Meh. I'm not sure that a list of 100 books to read before you die needs ALL of Dante, or the minor works of Shakespeare.
Well, obviously I want others to contribute, and I didn't expect it to last up high for long. I include it because of it's historical and historiographic interest--the latter owing to his use of documents. Much the same applies to Valla's On the Donation of Constantine. It's a landmark in how history is written. But… well, de gustibus!
So, how many books on your list have you yourself read? (I've read 63 out of 115-- so about half)
