So I see a link in Reddit to a list of 1000 books that is compiled from internet lists that You should read.
So I click it. It took hours to download. Hours.
It wasn't lined up in neat rows, so impossible to count. It repeated books. It made no sense.
I had read 35 of the first hundred books, 60 of the first two hundred books. That seemed about right. I read mostly genre, but I read enough other stuff to think I've read lots of good books, not to mention that many genre books have moved into the canon.
Then the drop off was extreme. Basically, I've read only 40 out of the next 800 books.
I hated this list. Too many books by the same authors, instead spreading the goodness. Ridiculous.
The first link here is the actual link: DO NOT CLICK! unless you want to spend hours loading.
The second list is an Imgur that somebody did. CLICK THIS.
