1001 books to read before I die...

After viewing "1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die", I've decided to challenge myself to read 1001 books before I die. I will use the list I linked for inspiration, however, I don't believe I will use the complete list. I want to re-read the books on the list that I've already finished, because I read them a few years ago and they aren't quite fresh in my memory.

As a starting point, I went through the "1001 Books" list and compiled the books I already own, or have seen at the library/thirft store. You can view that list HERE. (There are approximately 37 books on my list so far, only 964 more to add... then read)

Here are eight of the books I already own from the list. I do also own The Hobbit, but I forgot it was on the list so it wasn't included in this photo.

I think I'll start with Farenheit 451, it's a shorter book to get the ball rolling. What are YOU reading?

ETA: I'm open to suggestions for my list!


  1. Hi Monique

    I havent check the list but I would recommend the Haidmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

  2. Yeah, that's on the list, and I have already read it, but that was seven years ago, so I intend to re-read. Thanks Betty!
