Not my list you understand, but rather based on a book by Peter Boxall with the title 1001 Books you must read before you die. I read through the list, and downloaded an Excel Spreadsheet to help me track how many of them I have read. Turns out I’m falling badly behind.
The premise of the book is that these 1001 writings trace the development of the Novel from its earliest form to the modern novel. I don’t know if that’s true, since I’ve only read like 75 of the 1001 novels I need to read. However, I decided it might be a good learning experience to try and work my way through the list and see what I discover. I think a little “research” might be in order.
So here’s how it’s going to go down y’all.
I’ve created a page on the side of my site called 1001 books. You can pop in there any time to see how many I have managed to cross off, and how many I need to read each year to make it before I die. (Statistically speaking of course.)
Then after I read each book, I’ll post a review here. As well as reviews of some of the other books I read. Time to start talking about what I read as well as what I write.
So stay tuned for a review of my current novel, Little Women.
