A Book a Day: The 365 Greatest Books of All Time

Ever wish you had a different book for every day of the year? Me neither, but I created this list anyway. I went down a rabbit hole looking at the Modern Library’s list of the “100 Best Novels of the 20thCentury” and comparing it to Time Magazine’s “100 Best Novels Since 1923,” and decided they were too modern-biased and too American-biased and too English language-biased and started looking at other lists and ended up combining six of them. So here they are, incorporating “100 Best” lists from The Guardian and from The Observer in Britain, a list compiled by readers of Penguin Classics, and finally (to get a non-English perspective), a list compiled by Norwegian book clubs affiliated with the Norwegian Nobel Institute in 2002. There are 365 separate works on the combined list (I left out nonfiction classics). In the following list, alphabetized by author, I have underlined books mentioned on at least four separate lists, There are two books that were mentioned on all six lists (i.e., Nabokov’s Lolita and Orwell’s 1984). Have fun counting how many you’ve already read, and which ones you’d like to read. You’re welcome.
