A BBC list of 100 books

A BBC meme asks how many of the 100 books of a list they published have you read.  Library Thing comments that "the BBC apparently believes most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books."  It's probably true to me. While I read two Harry Potter books and Da Vinci Code twice, I managed only parts of numbers 7-13 on my list: (Library Thing link has the complete list; see how many have you read)


1. Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
2. Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
3. Harry Potter series - JK Rowling
4. Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte
5. Bleak House - Charles Dickens
6. The Da Vinci Code - Dan Brown
7. Adventures of Sherlocke Holmes - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
8. Little Women - Louisa May Alcott
9. Anne Shirley of Green Gables - Lucy Maud Montgomery
10.  The Bible
11.  The Complete Works of Shakespeare
12.  Moby Dick - Herman Melville
13. A Tale of Two Cities - Charles Dickens

  1. I've been reading Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte for over a month now. It puts me to sleep after a chapter lol Some classics there, for sure.
    Happy T13!

  3. I went to the list and I have read 36 of the books, and parts of others, such as Shakespeare and the Bible. But I read a lot and many of them I read in high school and college. I think the important thing is to read, period.
