I've read 22 of them. There's another 7 that I vaguely recall reading (back in school) but I can barely remember them and I can't honestly say I ever finished them, what with the whole group projects and what not, so I didn't count those.
That's a cool list, though it seems slightly random in its selections--I fully expected there to be more literary classics (and by classics, I means books not exactly written in our generation) or banned books.
In any event, I've read about 30 with another 10 being on my TBR shelf (yes, I actually have copies of the books and they are officially waiting to be read).
I've read 41, but I'd love to see the article or hear the story behind this. Are these books supposed to be 'important' or indicative of anything in particular? I'm sure I'm not the only one who was stunned to see some books included and so many great reads excluded. How many have you read, Nikola? :-)
I did this a while back -- here is my posting with my responses:
I have read 24+
I think it's interesting the BBC believes that because know I have read around 24 of them, completely, and a good portion (definitely more than six) of those were for my high school classes. I was also very lucky because my second grade teacher read the Hobbit aloud to us.
Did anyone else have to read any of these for school?
