1,000 Novels Everyone Must Read

The Guardian gave away a supplement called “1,000 Novels Everyone Must Read” today; I missed it, but they’re releasing it online. It appears to be separated out into broad subjects, and so far they’ve got ‘Love’ on the site. From 2006 – 2008 I read on average 24 novels a year; at that rate, it will take me over 41 years to get through the Guardian’s list. Even if I assume I’ve read, let’s say 10% of their choices (having taken English Lit at A-Level and Degree, and having an interest in fiction, this seems realistic), the time only drops to 37 years, six months.
