PROJECT | 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die


I have picked this book up more than once and every time I sense it staring back at me with a  challenge. These findings were apparently compiled by a hundred International book critics. Here is the list of all the recommended Must Read titles. I wonder how many of these books I can read in my lifetime if I start now!?

This list lives here as a perpetual work in progress.

After sorting through the list to cross off those I had conquered, I realize that my efforts towards literature are deplorable. I wonder if I could even understand the underlying messages and metaphors intended between the lines without the help of a professor? I guess I’ll have to apply myself to find out!

PS – The actual book is much more fun to read than this list is – it has pictures, summaries, bios and even nerdy theme discussions for the majority of these titles!
