Time's Top 10 Books of All Time

As I was reading some other Thursday Thirteen's this morning, I found a post over at 3M Chat about Time's recent (ok, a month ago) top ten books of all time.

1. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
2. Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
3. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
4. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
5. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
6. Hamlet by William Shakespeare
7. The Great Gatsby F. Scott Fitzgerald
8. In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust
9. The Stories of Anton Chekhov by Anton Chekhov
10. Middlemarch by George Eliot

Sadly, I have only read ONE of these. I will not tell you which one, and no, it's not Hamlet. We have six of them ( I think) on our shelves at home. I get one of them in my email every day from Clearly, I need to read even more. I should make this another challenge!

...Maybe for 2008. There'll be more hours in the day then, right?


  1. I read #1 so far... I would love to read more, but I am too busy.

    Reading blogs. :D

  2. Haha, yeah. I keep saying I need to stop reading about reading and actually read. But everyone is so interesting!

  3. I think that Russian authors are too verbose and overrated.

    All those Russian names make my head hurt.
