1001 books you must read before you die


Last meeting we suggested picking future books by choosing a number at random and doing the corresponding book from the 1001 books you must read before you die list.  Thanks to Merle for doing the research on this.

First explaining the list is Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1001_Books_You_Must_Read_Before_You_Die

Then official website of list is: http://1001beforeyoudie.com/ it’s searchable and sortable and gives bit of information about book and author when you click on title but I thought doesn’t give an easy overview of the list, which is what you get on next link.

Seemingly there are 3 editions of the list and both times new titles have been added and some scrapped, this last link has supposedly all the books that have ever been chosen so there’s actually 1305 books on it : http://www.1morechapter.com/projects/1001-list/
Even if we don’t go with this idea it’s quite interesting to look through it.


We can discuss this more on Tuesday night anyway. Looking forward to the first book club of 2013.
