The BBC believes most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here. How do your reading habits stack up?
25. Though I claim that the Bible should count for 66 altogether which would put me closer to 80 something. Damn, I have a lot of catching up to do!
Instructions:
Look at the list and mark those you have read.
* = read it
** = read it, remember it.
$$ = own it, haven’t read yet.
