The 1001 Books to Read Before You Die

Shoutout to this post here from 1001bookreviews.com who are reading (& reviewing) one book at a time!  All the hard work was done by them, based on this compilation from this awesome book linked here, titled “1001 Books to Read Before You Die.”

I’ve never heard of this list but wanted to give it a go. As there have been a few editions of this work, you may see some “a” (from the 2008 list) and some “b” (from the 2010 list) as addendums to the 2006 list. Please note that I haven’t added the 2012 edition books yetI also have yet to read the compilation, so I cannot vow for this list’s complete accuracy, but at a quick glance between references most look similar.

You can also find the list here on GoodreadsHere is a great resource that has been put together via Listopia in a Google Doc form.

Here are my notations:

  • X – read
  • O – own
  • CR – currently reading
