A friend had this in her Facebook notes, thought it'd be nice here as well:

Apparently the BBC reckons most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here.
Instructions:
1) Look at the list and put an 'x' after those you have read.
2) Add a '+' to the ones you LOVE.
3) Star (*) those you plan on reading.
4)I'm adding two more notations: '-' for read it but didn't like it, and '?' for read it sometime long ago and don't really remember it.
5) Tally your total at the bottom.

All of our totals are higher because they are including series. Harry Potter should be 7 books, not one. The Chronicle of Narnia is really 10 books. They count The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe so people should be getting an additional 8 books counted. (shrugs)

My count is based on their list but I find including series silly.

They also listed the Complete plays of Shakespeare and then later list Hamlet individually. That doesn't make sense either.

I demand credit for that as well.  What on earth was the criteria used to make this list?  I would love to meet the person who made it up.

It is a weird list, isn't it? Classics that you probably read in school some where, current popular authors, popular kids/young adult books.
That's what I was thinking when I saw it. A good chunk, at least a third, of my list were required school readings. So I was shocked when my friend didn't have them listed on her list. And why were some items listed "twice" (Narnia, Hamlet...)?

There were several that were required reading for school like: The Great Gatsby and the Grapes of Wrath
Crime and Punishment, The Life of Pi....and a couple of others were extra credit assignments
The ones that have movies based on them...I most likely read. (The Lovely Bones is coming out to theaters in the fall)
