37 from board list
45 from readers list
Which means nothing. Thomas Hobbes said if he'd read as much as the others, he wouldn't know any more than they did.

6 total for me, one on the board's list 5 frmo the reader's list, though I own To Kill A Mockingbird, never read it, will one day, and my husband owns A Clockwork Orange, which he says I definately have to read, so I guess I will read that one too. I was shocked, I thought I was a pretty good reader and read alot, these lists put me to shame. I am going to have to read some of them. Oh, and I own Gone With the Wind, a great novel.

With the word, I am mighty, with the pen I am free..

if i didn't miss any repeats the total is 34
20 from the board list
23 from the reader list ( with 9 from both )

I thought it odd that some of the books high on each list were not anywhere on the other.. in particular Lord Of The Rings..
And I was happy to see Dune on the reader list.. one of my favourite sci-fi books..

My grand total......

FOUR!

I'm so ashamed... but where are the greats? Perhaps some of my favorites (The epic poems, the plays) weren't considered...

10 in all... lol!  4 from the Board.  *groan* pathetic, huh?  lol...

I've heard of the majority of them... does that count??

I never thought that you would ever be the one to let me down. I guess that just goes to show how wrong I always am.

5. 4 on the board list, they're all on the readers list, and 1 extra on the readers list. Not bad considering I read them all in the past year and a half. (Last year was the first year I read anything worth reading).

LOL, four books.. all from the Reader's.. no Board books.

"The Lord of the Rings"
"Ender's Game"
"Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"
"Watership Down"

I've read quite a few from the Radcliffe list and a respectable percentage from the reader's list... most of the ones I've read on the board's list are duplicates of those. (I had a teacher give me a reading list in high school and I plowed through it one summer. *G*) However, I have to agree with Brad that these lists are fairly meaningless. I've certainly read great books that aren't on the list and thought some of these were wastes of time... so I don't know what criteria was used to judge.

But if influence counts, then In Cold Blood has to top my list... that book scared the bejeezus out of me and gave me nightmares for months! LOL
