1000 books to read - better get started!
the guardian has released its full list of 1000 books everyone must read. They've done it by genre, of sorts, which works pretty well, as far as I can tell, as they've decided that it's not the "best" books, but "must reads." As for reading all the books on the list, the writers figured that if you read a book a month (plus one extra per year) from age 8 to 85, you'll get there. Let's see, I'm 30, so I'm 22 years behind - better get cracking! I guess I could just live to be 107. Check out the list and its defense.
