The 100 Book Reading Challenge

This blog came about because I recently decided to broaden my literary horizons and venture outside my reading comfort zone, and write about my experiences to keep me motivated. I set myself the challenge of reading 100 books that come up in various ‘best books of all time’ type lists. This is also my first time blogging, so all in all, this is basically one giant experiment!

To build my list of 100 books to read, I did a Google search for compilations, and came up with a number of hits. The challenge became deciding which list to read. In the end I thought I’d compile my own list, based on books that appeared in 4 different compilations: The Guardian’s 100 Greatest Novels of All Time , The Telegraph’s 100 Novels Everyone Should Read, The BBC’s Big Read Top 100 Books and Time Magazine’s All TIME 100 Novels.
