I've been browsing blogs that stuckinabook has linked to on his blog, and although I've not made myself know, I felt I had to link to exlibris, because they had a link to this - a wonderful challenge. The idea is to group the books into sets of ten, and then you have to read at least one from each group. If you've read one or more, then you can skip that group. What you end up with is a reading list! So let's see what I come out with!
1 - 10: Skipped: I've read #'s 1 and 9 (Never Let me Go: Ishiguro; and The Master: Toibin)
11 - 20: # 19: The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time: Haddon
21 - 30: # 30: That They May Face the Rising Sun: McGahern
31 - 40: # 34: Youth: Coetzee
41 - 50: Skipped: I've read # 42 (Atonement: McEwan)
51 - 60: # 54: White Teeth: Smith
61 - 70: # 63: The Blind Assassin: Atwood
71 - 80: # 71: The Romantics: Mishra
81 - 90: Skipped: I've read # 86 (The Poisonwood Bible: Kingsolver)
91 - 100: # 97: Jack Maggs: Carey
So that's the 100, and I need to read 7. I feel like I should do the whole 1001, and I might come back to it, but for now, I need to go out and scour the second hand bookshops of Oxford!
