 100. ??? (For you observant types, yes the list does appear to be missing book no. 100)

I feel proud I have 18, haha.

How do you rank?


  1. Hahah I didn't count the number I got because I was still raging over Dan Brown being on this list.

    I feel like making a list of the worst books ever published and making it a similar meme for sadomasochists, lmao

  2. I guess I'll actually try this. Congrats for getting 18 though.
    Also I see your adds our finally up. ^^

  3. Read 9 out of the first 10 in school but only a few scattered in the rest.

  4. I shared this with my coworkers.... some even got up to 50! Now I feel dumb! lol

  5. After reading the title, I feel smart too!

  6. I got about 16? I am so ashamed of myself...

  7. Wait...books? The hell are books? I don't understand...

  8. I don't own any of these :(
    I have read several. Yes, well more than 6

  9. I hit 22, but I'm a little butthurt at the inclusion of Winnie The Pooh, and the Mitch Albom selection. Did the BBC put together this list or just report it? Because frankly, I found whole sections of it to be not just questionable, but embarrassing. And your coworkers are lying pretentious cretins desperate to appear cultured.

  10. and agglutinative stones are imaginary number. spontaneous comes from a finding that already are slender.
