1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die
I've read 55 books and have 11 tbr (2008)
I've also read 6 books in the 2006 list.

I bought a bunch of books at a book sale, so now I have no more space in my bookshelf. Guess its time to start a bookring or something!
Books I bought:
Middlemarch by George Eliot
Silent Spring by Rachel Carson
The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro
Dubliners by James Joyce
Finnegans Wake by James Joyce
In Defense of English Cooking by George Orwell
A Clergyman's Daughter by George Orwell
The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
Hegemony or Survival by Noam Chomsky
Utopia by Thomas More

Books to read:

I use the following rating scale for books that I have read: (Found this scale on other people's profiles and borrowed it! Thank you!)

10: Excellent, at the top of its category. This book has impacted me deeply, challenged me profoundly, or has simply been a pure delight to read
9: Great book - just a nitpick stands between it and a 10
8: Good, solid book that I would recommend to others
7: Good book, but it didn't grab me in a big way
6: Decent, but not my type of book
5: Maybe somebody else would like this. I didn't
4: Only OK. Barely worth reading. The line between taking it and leaving it is very thin
2-3: Has major problems. I don't recommend it
1: It's hard to imagine anyone liking this book
(I will start changing my ratings to this scale...soon!)
