Tag 21 – books

So I got tagged by a bunch of people, so many that I actually have forgotten all who have tagged me and so in all fairness I will not link the couple I remember.

A list of 100 books (there are actually only 98, when you take it into excel!) and to check and see how far down the road you are and how many fine books there are out there that one is yet to read.

I did some work with the list. Put it into a document and called it 100bookstoread in case anyone wants to download and use. Posting a screen shot of the list of books that I have actually read..


Depressing and shocking, not to mention quite ashamed to call oneself a bookworm, but here it is. I think am only half the worm. I know. I look at the numbered list above and I have to agree, am only a third of a worm. Am like the outlier at the worm-conference. The one that everyone spots right away but are being polite not to call on, the one that gets those shifty looks. The kind when joins the table, everyone magically finds an excuse and leaves slowly but surely.

*cough- I need that drink now.

*sniff – Gosh, I must be coming down with a cold, will not infect any further

*drat – I had that call I need to return to.

and so on and so forth.

      ah, see, there are so many lists and too many new books being added everyday! It’s quite impossible to aim to do it all.. and am one of those never say die ones!

    Nice list and impressive how much you have read..

    To be really honest, I havent even heard of the following amongst the list of 100.. Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, Madame Bovary, and the Color Purple..

    *off to find a term to describe my ‘knowledge’ of supposed masterpieces*

      You are so right! 🙂

      I was quite puzzled that there were quite a few titles missing in there, almost deleted some and added in some!

      BBC generated, I had no idea! 🙂

      Well said. I would also recommend Umberto Eco’s Foucault’s Pendulum and The Name of the Rose. Better written and it may remind you of a pop author or two.

    Nice! These are the things that make me wish for a day job.

    Unrelated, but I have a spreadsheet where I try to keep track of the books that I own (and have supposedly read at one point or another, one would hope).

        Well, to be fair, they do include a good chunk of what I’d call “airport authors” whose books I purchased because I was stuck at an airport. Or two. Or three. For several hours (which will be almost every other week, come winter).

    Those lists are someone (or many) else’s opinion. And if you have read all in that list, what is there to look forward to in life? eh?

    1. says: rads

      Look who’s here!

      O totally, not taking it seriously. Even if there is one good book being released a week, a lifetime isn’t enough to wrap it all, or maybe if that’s the ONLY thing we do, we could.
