January: 1001 books I must read before I die .... well, at least a month's worth!

I really never bought into the whole 1001 whatever you must do/see/read before you die thing, but I thought it might be interesting to see how many of these books I actually have and start reading them.  I recently bought this book from Amazon UK (the newest, most updated version), so  when it gets here I'm going to go through my shelves and try to see if there are any matches on my shelves to what's on the list.  In the meantime, I'll use Booklit.com's  list as a guide for getting started with January's reading.  I have a few books that I'm certain aren't on the list that I'm planning to throw in as well.

My only resolution this year is to read what I have, recycle the ones I don't want to keep and reuse the space for new books. 

good luck to me!


  1. I found that book just added to my wishlist - so many great suggestions I'd never heard of. Good luck with your resolutions!

    1. Thank you! I have almost finished cataloging my home library ( 1 group left to go) so everything has a place now and I can actually see what I have. Nothing like a little organization to start the year.


Say what you will, but at least try to be nice about it.
