1000 Books You Must Read

I get a daily e-mail from January Magazine, an online magazine about reading and writing, which pointed out this crazy article in The Guardian listing, literally, 1,000 books you must read.

Read January Magazine's synopsis of the article first because it prepares you for the classifications and subcategories that await you here.

If you are feeling stuck in a reading rut, I highly suggest looking at this list. There is something here for everyone. Also, The Guardian's website does a nice job of linking you to many other articles about authors and "best books" which you may find interesting.

On a side note, I do really wish that an American newspaper had breadth and variety of book coverage that The Guardian provides. But thank goodness for the Internet.
