I recently decided on a huge (and incredibly nerdy) undertaking:
I am going to read through the Modern Library’s list of the 100 greatest novels. This will take an incredibly long time. And I don’t plan on starting it right away (I have a few reads I need to finish).
I’ll update everybody every 5 or so books to let you know how it’s going, what I think about the books, etc. It’ll be awhile before I finish the first novel (Ulysses by James Joyce) because it’s huge. I’ve started reading it before but I’m going to start from the beginning again and make it all the way through. I love Joyce’s stuff but Ulysses is a pretty difficult read.
How many of them have you read?

Good luck! It’s impressive that Joyce is number 1 & 3.
Thanks! It is impressive. But he was such a master (and destroyer) of the English language, it’s not surprising. If you haven’t, read his collection of short stories, Dubliners.
I’ll do it… I have to admit that I have not read many of the top 100.
