Update of the Day: Radcliffe's Top 100 List

My post on Radcliffe's Top 100 novels of the 20th Century list is completely updated. Now all the links work. Although I refuse to make any official New Year's reading resolutions, I am unofficially going to push to finish the books on this list in 2009. I have 19 books to go, although "one" of those books is The Lord of the Rings trilogy, so I really have 21 to go. We will see if I make it.

If you have any love at all for the Arthurian legends, I predict you will be hooked on LOTR in short order (I have read them 5 or 6 times).

And I'm sure you don't want to hear this, but are you going to start with The Hobbit? It will add a lot to your reading experience of the others.

Interesting point about the Arthurian legends, because I am just now listening to the unabridged audio book version of The Mists of Avalon, which I somehow skipped ever reading. I like it a lot. Maybe 2009 will be my year for fantasy epics -- never a genre I spent much time with.

Happily, I did read The Hobbit already. I really liked it, but then only got about 50 pages into the first of the trilogy before conking out. I'm going to stick to it this time. I suspect it will help that I have it on my iPod as an audio book.
