Going through my comments and subsequently snooping on other people’s blog I came across a reference to The Modern Library’s 100 Best Novels on Thomas’s My Porch Blog.
It’s not that I feel I need to read every recommended book ever but it is good to have a bit of inspiration sometimes and this one has got a bit of a different mix and includes lots of books I would never have considered. I’ll be keeping an eye out for some of those in my local second hand book shop, Copperfields which I discovered a few weeks ago (Perk of the Job).
Also, top of the list is Ulysses which I’ll be reading for DoveGreyReader’s Team Ulysses challenge. I haven’t started it yet… whoops! And there are a few from my TBR list like I Claudius which I really should get round to.
Here’s that 100 Best Novels List for anyone else that’s interested.
