1001 Books to Read Before You Die

The edition of 1001 Books To Read Before You Die that I have is the Australian. The list below is the one kindly complied by the folk at List Challenges.

The first edition of the book was the 2006 UK one edited by Dr. Peter Boxall, quickly followed by one published in the US. Updates in 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2018 are included below and helped to internationalise the list, after some early criticism about how Anglocentric the original list was.

I have marked the Australian titles with an (A).

When I moved from blogger to wordpress in 2020 the links did not come across. As I have time I will tidy up the formatting and add links to my reviews for the books I have read during my blogging life.
