I started this list a long time ago…. It’s basically the TIME Top 100 Novels list, because I figured I might as well read at least some of the books that everyone is supposed to have read.
Note: I doctored it a little, cutting out a handful of books I wasn’t willing to read, or had read recently.
The time lag is mostly because the list got set aside after graduation, and unearthed more recently. I’ve been working on it, slowly, between other books that I prioritized higher.
After all, some classics are, well–not interesting.
It didn’t help that I moved libraries throughout this list– first, my college library, and then I found every book I could at another library–which was by no means all of them. The rest I had to ILL (Inter Library Loan), or I found from a third library.
Nonetheless, I am done! I feel a sense of accomplishment, and I am never doing this again. Definitely.
