Note: I got permission to share this list on my blog. (Thank you, Stuart!) You could go HERE for the list of “623 of the best books ever written” and see them all at once for yourself, and/or you can follow the list here a few at a time.
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings!
I’ve read 10 on this list. A Room of One’s Own (read more than once), Cold Sassy Tree, The Road from Coorain,The Sheltering Sky, and Time and Again being favourites. There are some others on the list I would like to read. So many books, so little time….
Perhaps I should feel ashamed for not reading nearly as much as I thought I had … except my reading was usually for younger folk. I do have MANY books waiting for me to enjoy them. On this list the only ones I read are Cold Sassy Tree, Where the Wild Things Are, and a little of Oliver Twist.
Thanks, Darlene, for always adding your comment; it helps suggest to me which books I should consider. 🙂
I’ve read 488 and 509 and want to read 475. 🙂
I’m sure you will read 475 (Oliver Twist). Thanks, Erik. 🙂
