    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.

    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):clap:

    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?

    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!
