I found the BBC list by accident a few years ago and I’ve been very slowly picking up books on the list that BBC claims “most people” have only read at most 6 of these 100 classics.
If you want to see how you fare on “the list” you can test yourself here : http://www.listchallenges.com/kaunismina-bbc-6-books-challenge
In any case, I’ve decided to pick up the pace on completing this list and reading AT LEAST 1 of these a month. So far I’ve read 23 of the 100 books.
This week I’m diving into Jane Austen, I can’t believe I haven’t read any Austen at all before now, and since I like to begin at the beginning, I’m starting with her first book “Sense and Sensibility”.
