1000 Novels Everyone Must Read

... as chosen by the Guardian. Click here to see their list. I'm going to print it to see how many I can tick off! I was encouraged to see I had read the very first book, Lucky Jim by Kingsley Amis, but sadly there was a very long gap after that. Lists, checking things off, what's not to like for a cataloguer and book fan?


  1. Hi Anne,
    We were looking through the list last night, its funny Stephen was saying there are some books he would have that are classics that aren't on the list. My all time favourite, To Kill a Mocking Bird features though.

  2. Hi Ally, ooh, which books did Stephen think should be on there? I agree, To Kill a Mockingbird is a wonderful book!


  3. Hi Anne

    Harry's Game by Gerald Seymour for one,
    also, Alistair McClean Ice Station Zebra,

    can't remember some of the others as not heard of them, our Snowy was kind of acting daft and chasing round so half an eye was not him too.
