Interesting lists...I think I'll go back and check out a few and see if I feel the same way about them as I did when I first read them.

Wow. Twenty from the top list, twenty-four from the second. I keep a list of books to read. Going to add a few from these. I agree with Jenn though. I think there are some great books missing. Wish I had more time lately. Maybe this vacation week. emoticon emoticon

I've only read 35 total. Many of these books are suspect to me, and there are lots of books that are missing, I feel.

Would you believe less than 1/2 of both lists combined?
I've read 23 from the first list and 47 from the second. (at least that I can remember reading lol) I did get some titles for my 2011 reading list that I'm already compiling.
