    It took a long time, but I was determined.

    May I presume that the Vedas, Buddhavacana, and maybe even the Apocrypha are on the to-do list?

    If you do get to the Apocrypha, wait till you hit the Gospels of the Infancy. What a brat.

    I have read a handful of books on Buddhism, but not the other two. They are on my list now. Thanks.

    13 for me. I know practically all of those books, but with some of them I just don't have a desire to read them, so I counted only those books I have honestly read.

    These lists are nice should one need a list of stories to read...the list is a starting point where one can narrow the search. Where is that list of Stephen King's picks for stories for 2013? I performed a search but that didn't come up...had maybe three hits, none related...although maybe it was within one of those threads? I'll look again. :) Thank you.

    Mine is actually 25. I too have read the Bible and yet I didn't click it. I'm going to hell now for sure.

    And I'm 52 - which makes us both old, but gold.

    Getting older and becoming increasingly disabled at the same time is a weird experience.

    Getting older and becoming increasingly disabled & looking younger than I am (profile pic is me) feels like Ol' Mr. Higher Power has a sense of humour.:blues:

    OK.
    I'm officially a noodlehead- I thought you were declaring your age Spidey - sorry.
    Just realized that the number relates to number of books you read, on that list.
    My score - 36.

    Only 11 for me but there are a couple I'm not sure about and there are also a few I started and didn't finish. Also, there are a few more that are unread and in my bookcase but I just haven't got to them. I've had 100 Years of Solitude for years and just have never got to it. I don't know how many times I've said, "I'm reading 100 Years of Solitude next and then I don't.

    I'm far behind. I had read 45. Though i would not call all of them classics. some of them i read long ago and have rather dim memories of so i guess they didn't leave a lasting impression.

    Yes that was strange. I have read Hamlet but not every play of shakespeare so didn't count the complete works. And the bible? the picture named the 1611 edition. I have only read the swedish translation but i hope that counts.
