    What an odd conglomeration! I'd love to see the criteria used for making the selection. Why, for example, pick The Secret Garden but not Little Lord Fauntleroy? Or Anne of Green Gables but not the entire series?

    I, too, am puzzled by having both the Complete Works of Shakespeare and Hamlet--was this the expurgated version? The one without the gannet? (Waves at any fellow Monty Python fanatics.) It also lists the Chronicles of Narnia and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; it's all a bit puzzling. No Mark Twain? I admit my ignorance in having never heard of Iain Banks or Rohinton Mistry.

    I'm reading "The Woman In White" now. I've read 21 of the above. I don't think the Woman In White is very good. I keep wanting to put it down and read something else.

    I've read 36 of these but I have to argue with the list...how is The Complete Works of Shakespeare one book? Or what if you've read 2/3 of His Dark Materials?

    Not a bad list nevertheless.

    I've read 27 of the books on the list. I'm embarrassed to say that i read The Five People You Will Meet in Heaven. It was an accident. Forgive me.

    Good list. I like the mix of classic and fun.

    I'm too lazy to bold and italicize which, but I completely read 45 books on the list and got halfway through 6 more, for a total of 51 if the book is half-read or 45 if the book is half-unread.

    I've read 30 of them listed and im 15...i guess i'll put the others on my reading list (my reading list is now is the size of 'Gone with the wind').

    This seems to be quite a bizarre list though... quite spread out. If it's supposed to be a definitive collection of the classics there are some gaping holes...no Wilde? no Pratchett? no DH Lawrence? no Arthur Miller or Bernard Shaw? and they've listed the entire works of Shakespeare? Odd.

    better than I thought I would do!

    Wow. An even 50 for me. Some of my favorite books are on this list. Then again, there are a lot of books I didn't like at all on here too...

    I suppose what makes great literature is subjective. I'd be much farther ahead if I had finished a lot of the ones I have in italics- but I just didn't have the heart. I even have some on my bookshelves waiting to be read. I should probably get on that, huh?

    So for me, it's 18 fully read, 5 partially read, and 1 that I have but haven't read as of yet.

    Not too shabby compared to the statistics posted in the OP's beginning post. Not surprised to see many of them were dystopian novels, which I love.
    Current WIP: Untitled short story - 5,663 words
    Four Stars, No Stripes (working title) - 31,175 words (On hiatus)

    I've read 51. I almost always finish a book once I start it, I'm just weird like that. If it interested me enough to pick it up, I usually want to see it resolved.
    I think plenty of people have read more than 6 books on this list. In school we were required to read many of these books.

    The Mad Hatter: Have I gone mad?
    Alice: I'm afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But I'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.
