Bold the ones you’ve read COMPLETELY, italicize the ones you’ve read part of, and no cheating. Watching the movie or the cartoon doesn’t count. Abridged versions don’t count either. BTW, according to the BBC if you’ve read 7 of these, you are above the average.

Comments in parentheses are entirely my own.

32 David Copperfield - Charles Dickens
33 Chronicles of Narnia - CS Lewis
