1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die, Revised


The 1001 list has been revised for a new edition of the book, to make it less anglo- and eurocentric. I applaud the effort, in theory. But I'm sure I don't have to spell out why I find it somewhat annoying too. >:-)

I'm going to be sticking to the old list for my crazy project, with the additions as a less important add-on. These are the books I've read from among the additions.

417. Pippi Longstocking - Astrid Lindgren
528. The Birds - Tarjei Vesaas
737. The House with the Blind Glass Windows - Herbjørg Wassmo

And, although in the listing I found, this has no number:
Kristin Lavransdatter - Sigrid Undset

This will be updated, but slowly. :-)
