It does, doesn't it? Miss seeing you around.
Double-dipped, chocolate chip thanks - I'm well & truly back now, despite the best efforts of the bald doctors. .
My number is 20. The best of the ones I've read on that list is Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad. One of the few books I have read more than once, and wouldn't mind revisit again.
The worst book I've read on that list is Atonement by Ian McEwan. Cant' stand his writing. Pretentious and bloated.
I have only read 19 but have some of the others sitting on shelves waiting to be read.
Geeez, no SK on that list?? Must have not been a very well thought out list.
If you want a piece of well-written apocalyptic fiction( with a side order of hard science ) read Flood by Stephen Baxter - I just gobbled it up.
This Kindle for PC habit is now getting out of hand - I may never sleep again.
Sequel to Stephen Baxter's Flood - Ark - excellent, with a bigger side order of hard science.
And then for lovers of all things zombie - Manel Loureiro's Apocalypse Z: The Beginning of the End(someone give that translator an award)
I've read 15 of those books. Though I noticed that since it's from the BBC, it's heavily skewed towards British authors. No Mark Twain?
No Margaret Atwood or Alice Munroe either
I've got exactly half - 50/100. Thought it would be worse. But I wonder why so many must-read writers are not mentioned on this list. For example, no Jack London or Dante Alighieri. Who would've thought!
