The BBC believes most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here. How do your reading habits stack up? Instructions: Copy and bold those you have read. I've italicized those that are a series and I have read one of the books, or if I have read part of it.  (Any comments are in parentheses.)

1 Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
2 The Lord of the Rings - JRR Tolkien (I'm always planning to read this - I have all the books)
3 Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte
4 Harry Potter series - JK Rowling
5 To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
6 The Bible (not all of it)
7 Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte
8 Nineteen Eighty Four - George Orwell
9 His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman
10 Great Expectations - Charles Dickens

list of 100 )

Grand total:  59

I've read more than I thought ... but most of it was in my teen years and early 20s when I had the mental energy and focus to read great huge chunks at a time.  Now it's taking me months to get through 'Ender's Game' and I tend to read more nonfiction and fewer novels.
