1001 Books To Read

The 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die book by Peter Boxall was first published in 2006. Since then the list has been revised with a few changes. The most changes were made in the 2008 edition. The total number of books that have been included in all the editions now totals 1,305. The list below includes all 1,305 books.

I have indicated those books that I have read in Red, those that I definitely want to read in Blue and those I definitely don’t want to read in Grey. All the others which consist of those books I either don’t know enough about or haven’t made my mind up to read have been left in Black.

My list was compiled from a spreadsheet available from a link on a GoodReads list.

I have read 238 books from the list so far (May 2018).
