Last week, I started an ambitious new project where I’m reading the Top 125 Books of All-Time.
The list is my attempt to read through a “consensus” Top X Books list, considering how different each of these lists seem to be. So what I did was take six of the most popular ones and consolidated them to see which books these lists had in common.
The lists I used were:
- The Guardian
- The Observer
- The Telegraph
- Le Monde
- Modern Library
- Time Magazine
I learned that 125 books appear on more than one list in this set. So I compiled them here and plan to read them over the next … however many years. I don’t like reading timeframes, so that’s the best you’re going to get.
The first of these Top 125 Reads was An Artist of the Floating World by Kazuo Ishiguro.
