  1. Hi Trish!

    Where’d the list come from?

    Scarily, i
    – have read 45
    – am reading 2 currently
    – have read bits of 2 more
    – have another 4 on my shelf waiting to be read
    – actually went to the trouble to count!

    (if you ever want to borrow a book, feel free!)

  2. Hmmmm, I counted them twice and I’ve read sixty-nine.

  3. And I’ve only read 15 …
    I mustn’t be very well read. Well, that is according to the person who compiled the list … I’ve read plenty of books that aren’t on the list! And I’ve considered reading many that are …

  4. Only 22 for me.

  5. 44 for me.. i am not sure if i am proud or dissapointed… Perhaps I should write my own top 100.. i might score higher then 🙂 and trish we need to speak about a some seriousily neglected areas of your childhood reading.. fancy not having read charlie and the chocolate factory or anne of green gables.. or even narnia… sigh…. who will i share my obsession of marring gilbert with now?? or getting to fly in a magical glass elevator?? or drinking from a river of chocolate?? or eating tea with Mr tumnus?? hmmm

  6. Miss Liz.
    I would love to do all those things with you. But I’m not sure what were going to do about Gilbert Blythe!!

  7. I’ve read about 50 of them. I’m sure if it was a different list, with more of the books I have read on it, I would have read more of the books on the list.
