1,001 Books…

…To Read Before You Die. Or go blind trying, I suppose. Learn all about the idea here:


I like the site because it provides a wealth of literary options (1,001 to be exact), and (eventually) reviews for each. Not from high falootin’ know-it-all’s mind you, but rather from fans. Fans of books. Some of them possibly even being high falootin’ know-it-all’s.

Please feel free to check in with the editors to become a volunteer (read: unpaid) reviewer. And should they decide to pay you, please don’t tell me, as I’ll be sorely disappointed by my pay rate in comparison.

Below will be the links to my reviews, shamelessly posted, and I’ll update this page as new submissions are released. Good or bad, please let me know what you think! Well, let’s try to keep the “bad” down to a minimum at any rate, shall we?

The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy

A Clockwork Orange

The Long Dark Tea-Time Of The Soul

The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test

  1. These look like really interesting texts that you’ve reviewed. I will need to give ‘Hitchiker’s’ another go… don’t know why I can’t just stick this book out. My man thinks it’s hysterical! The 1,001 lists make me feel bad about all of the books I’m yet to read…! :)

    • It’s very strange about that book, lovers or haters only, it seems… Hope you join the ranks of the former after giving it another go!

      And yeah, it’s amazing that someone read so many as to be able to determine the “top” 1,001!

  2. I’m amazed that Douglas Adams could write such funny books and yet he was such a depressed human being. Same with Spike Milligan.

That's my two cents. Now, tell me what you think...
