Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

A great big book list (n = 623)


Not sure how useful a list of 623 books (ranked in some impenetrably complex way) will be, but you might enjoy scrolling through it just to see how many of them you’ve read and whether you agree with the ranking. If you have nothing better to do on a Sunday afternoon, that is.

It’s actually a compilation of thirteen lists of the “100 Best Books” variety, though some of them must be several shy of 100. Otherwise this would be a list of 1300 books.

    I’m 12 for the top 20 and had hoped to read Lolita this summer. Still may, if I can squeeze it in. All of which means nothing. The reward is in the reading, not the placement. Still, glad to see A Passage to India, one of my favourites, near the top, and a surprise Douglas Adams at number 40.

      All well and good, Ross, but I think it’s rude to come in here and speak of Lolita in terms of “squeeze it in.” I don’t know what to think of you Canadians now…

        As if I wasn’t feeling sheepish enough having to borrow it from the library at the high school where I work…

        Nobody reads these comments. You’re okay.
