1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die
Happy Saturday!

I have been thinking about book challenges this morning and one challenge I have been seeing a lot of lately is Books everyone should read. I've seen the book, 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die but shockingly I do not own this. There's a good list over at Goodreads, Books that everyone should read at least once.

 Perusing the first twenty-five or so, I've read a good amount of them, although some were read in college and since forgotten. There are some that I've always wanted to read and never gotten around to and others that make me shudder at the thought of trudging through them. I am curious to see what's in this book though and how many I have actually read. So I'm putting this on my to be bought list, which I can probably find on abebooks for a few bucks and slowly invest some time into reading these books.

This will be a perpetual challenge on my site and I will create a page dedicated to the list of 1001 books as I start, feel free to join in and power through with me. Happy Reading!
