I've long known that I don't read as widely as I should. In fact, for a writer, my list of books read is embarrassingly modern. I did experience a few of the so-called great works of fiction at school, but since then... well, it just hasn't happened.
But that's all about to change. I've started a new blog - The 113 Supposedly Greatest Books Ever Written - and over the course of the next two years (hellfire, that's optimistic...) I'll be reading each and every one of them. And ranting/raving about them.
The first post is up - it explains what the experiment is all about, and first on the menu is a book I've been meaning to read for, oh, the best part of 25 years. Better late than never, I guess. Have a gander and you'll see what it's all about.
More importantly, feel free to join in the discussion about each book as I make my way up the list, or join in and read a book or two with me.
Gentlefolk, start your engines...
What's the most prescient book you'e ever read?
