1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die Challenge

January 1 2011 – Decemeber 31 2011
Caitie is hosting her very first challenge, the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die Challenge.  She writes:
I got this book for Christmas a couple years ago and am slowly making my way through the list. I have discovered some amazing books and writers. I don’t expect to ever read all of the books – but I do want to make a dent in the list and want to open it up for other to join me! The list is so great because it has a huge variety! There are classics that you may have read in school, but there are also some great books we have all missed and some fantastic world literature.

The challenge is simple – read some books from the list! If you don’t own the actual book, you can find a simple list online. For the most basic, check out the Listology list. There are spreadsheets outs there that you can look at too that are more complex.

High Schoo Diplomal: 5 books from the list
Bachelor’s Degree: 6-10 books from the list
Master’s Degree: 11-15 books from the list:
PHd: 16+


You don’t have to make a list beforehand.
You can use any version of the list, not just the current, since they update it every couple years
