1001 BOOKS

1001 Books Project

1001-books-to-read-before-you-die (1)

One of my lifetime reading goals is to complete every book from 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die. Many would scoff at this massive undertaking, but I am a very determined reader. Over the years, there have been several editions with each one adding new titles while removing others. I have managed to compile a list the includes every single title from all of the editions. As I check off titles from the list, I will post about the knowledge I have taken from this ultimate book list.

Check out the list below. I’ve arranged my reviews in alphabetical order by title. Hyperlinks will take you to my review in full. I will periodically update this list.
