The BBC allegedly believes most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here. How do your reading habits stack up? [bold those books you've read in their entirety, italicize the ones you started but didn't finish]
I almost never leave books unfinished once started - it's a thing. I may have read one or two of those I haven't bolded - some books are so part of the culture that you can't always be sure.( Collapse )
What else have I read? Lots of sf, lots of crime, Proust, Dante, Don Quixote, most of Thomas Mann. Gibbon's Decline and Fall
, large parts of 1001 nights.
What are the major works of world literature I have never managed to read all of? Muraskai, Sei Shonagon - indeed, I am quite staggeringly ill-read in Indian and Chinese and other Asian literature before C20.
