I'm fairly disappointed in myself. I've only read 15% of the list, and most of it during childhood. I must give props to my parents for actually encouraging me to read some of them!

  • I've read 26 on the list, but thats technically more if you count all of the Harry Potter books.

    Nice new layout

  • I haven't even heard of half of those. Why "A light in the Attic?" I'll have to be doubly sure to get copies of those for my kids to corrupt 'em.
