I CAN'T RESIST A LIST!
I started this blog to keep track of all my book lists. Here are the books lists I am working on, or at least thinking of working on someday. They include lists of prize winners, must reads, recommended reads, "best" books, and "top" books, as well as a few personal theme lists.
Any recommendations for your favorite book lists? Please don't tell me to add the 1,001 Books to Read Before You Die! I am not going to tackle that one. For one thing, it seems to be a moving target. Every time I go to look it up, I find several different versions of it.
The links below go to my blog posts for these lists, with links there to my reviews and related posts. Each lists also has a link to the source of the list. I try to keep the lists updated and have been trying to do major overhauls of all the them.
