Sometimes I think I’m well read. Then I play a game like this:
Have you read more than 6 of these books? The BBC believes most people will have read only 6 of the 100 books listed here.
Instructions: Copy this into your NOTES. Bold those books you’ve read in their entirety, italicize the ones you started but didn’t finish or read an excerpt. Give yourself 1 point for every bold and half a point for every italic.
33 Chronicles of Narnia – CS Lewis
37 The Kite Runner – Khaled Hosseini
61 Of Mice and Men – John Steinbeck
My final score is 34.5/100. That is obscene. While higher than the BBC average, I still find it unacceptable.
I hope to cross the other 66 off my list soon.
