1001 Books

BTW for those who are wondering why I'm mainly writing (rubbish reviews :D) about books: I found that excel spreadsheet on the internet that contains a list of 1001 books you should read before you die. That's THE challenge for me! After browsing through the list I discovered that sadly I, though having read quite a lot of books in my life already, only 14 of those were on the list. That was last autumn. Since then I try to read at least 20 pages every day for my own pleasure i.e. nothing study-related. The spreadsheet even calculates how many books you have to read a year to make it through the list within your lifetime. I have to read 17 a year. I'm on my 3rd one this year already and it's only the beginning of february :D. For everybody interested in the spreadsheet: I found it on that website:

  1. It seems I’ve only read 6 and I now need to read 18 a year. No chance. Any of the ones you’ve read so far that you’d suggest I try?
