The 1001 Book List

Below is our updated master list of books from Peter Boxall’s 1001 Books: You Must Read Before You Die.
We hope to have covered all versions (2006, 2008 and 2010) of the list now.  If you spot any errors, please just drop us an email and we will double check and make any corrections needed.

Please note: Because there is substantial differences between the 2006 and 2008 lists, there may be a bit of awkwardness around the numbering and the century in which it was published.  So please bear with us on that score as we try out how best to list those books.

Books with a suffix ‘a’ are from the 2008 list and ‘b’ from the 2010 list.

Each book already reviewed here at 1001 Book Reviews has a link directly to the review post.
Books that currently have readers in progress can be viewed in bold type.
