1001 Books

Assembled by over 100 literary critics, the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list boasts some of the best literature in the world. While I do not expect to read all of the works, I want to keep track of how many I have read. I bought and downloaded the full version of the spreadsheet made by Arukiyomi (http://johnandsheena.co.uk/books/?page_id=1806) to help me keep track. I'll also keep this page updated with the works that I've read and that are on my TBR pile. I'm including any work that was on any of the three lists, which include a total of 1294 works of literature. 

I also included links to my reviews, if I have reviewed it for my blog.
