I've read maybe five or six.

At least 'Dune's on there, it's somewhat lacking in any other science fiction.

41 for me.

I didn't see "Dune" on that list at all, though I went looked for it several times.

If "Dune" is there, then I've read 42.

It's an odd list, though, in that, one listing is "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe," by C.S.Lewis, but another is "The Chronicles of Narnia," which includes "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe."

And, while "The Lord of the Rings" (3 vols.) is one listing, different "Harry Potter" books are listed, rather than grouping them as one item.

After going through the list up to #600 I finally gave up. No listing for Thomas Pynchon? No "Gravity's Rainbow"? How can that be?

As the editors noted in their comments, "and we didn't want the list to feel like homework." So I gather they did not include "difficult" reads. The list just looks like a way to promote Kindle and Goodreads. So the list, for me, has little in intent to do with literature -- I'm inclined just to see it as promotional.

Still, some great books in there. I've read 31 of them.

But really -- "homework"? God forbid we should challenge ourselves.

To each one's own, I didn't see THE BIBLE in there?

And philly son, that is what makes the world go round. Just don't yell fire in a crowded movie house as they always say.

7 for me. Most of my favourite books aren't mentioned here.

A pretty pointless list as it's "Each to His Own" !

14 or 15.

Delighted to see Murakami's "Wind Up Bird Chronicle" on there.

I can't remember if I've read Fahrenheit 451 or only seen the film.

Heh heh - I had the same dilemma.
