I don’t know if you remember, but a while ago (quite a long while ago) I posted a list of the 100 “best books of all time” according to a survey The Guardian had done…?
A few days ago we went to Uppsala and took the opportunity to visit our favourite bookshop here in Sweden, the English bookshop that they have there. Upon arriving there we were at first a bit shocked; ’cause the shop was gone! Luckily though it wasn’t actually gone, it had only moved half a block or so, and it was now twice as big! Yay! 🙂
Anyway, why I brought that up was because there they had this list, the one I posted before, on the wall. It was fun to see it again, I had totally forgotten about it. I liked that list though and wanted to see if there were more lists like it out there. A quick search assured me that there are plenty!!! I didn’t read them all, (far from it) but I did read this list of 100 most loved books that BBC published a few years ago: BBC – The Big Read
Now on the previous list Pride and Prejudice was number one, on this one it wasn’t. It was “only” number two… 😉
One thing I like about reading these list is that you get so many good suggestions! Out of this list I had read 29 I think, so plenty more to go! One I’ve been wanting to read for quite some time now is War and Peace. I’ll just have to get it first, and the time for it…
Now I know this is really hard (at least I think so), but if you were to put together a list of your top 10 books, which would those 10 books be? I would love it if you would leave a comment and let me know! They don’t have to be in any specific order, unless you want to of course! 🙂
