Dix sent this to me and it's interesting in that it has some novels on it that are only a few years old. Some books I've read and they are favorites of mine, such as To Kill a Mockingbird, others I have but haven't read, such as Zadie Smith's White Teeth (maybe this will provide me with an impetus to read them) and others I've never heard of, such as Flann O'Brien's At Swim-Two-Birds. Others I've tried to read but have never been able to, such as Toni Morrison's Beloved which my son assures me is good but I've started it at least six times and have never been able to finish it.
babelbabe: Possession is on this list -- deservedly so.
My only real problem with it is that Time probably should have called it the All-Time 100 Novels of Western Literature as there aren't many non-western writers on here and none whose work isn't in English. Otherwise, it's an interesting and fun list and will lead to me reading even more.
