Another thousand or so to add to the TBR...

I've just noticed the Guardian is posting a list of their choices for "1000 Novels Everyone Must Read".

So far they've created a list of Crime Books and the latest selections are on the theme of Love... and although I question the inclusion of some of the titles under the aegis of love stories, as always, a list is entertaining to scroll through. They've even included a couple of my favourites -- Dodie Smith's I Capture the Castle and Rosamond Lehmann's The Weather in the Streets and The Echoing Grove.

Take a look yourself if you need a list fix!


  1. Thanks for the link! I love I Capture the Castle, but I haven't heard of Rosamond Lehmann before.

  2. Interesting. I've seen their 100 books to read but now I'll have to check this out. I'm such a sucker for lists.

  3. I love lists, too, but looking over theirs, I think I'll take it less as "books I must read" and more as "books I ought to consider, if I hadn't." American Psycho, honestly...

  4. I love lists. And argue with all of them!
