1% Well-Read Challenge

When I first started book blogging there was a challenge called the 1% Well-Read Challenge.  The goal was to read 1% of the books on the 1,001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list.  I don't know if this challenge is still going on officially but still try to do it annually.  I use the list from 2008 version of 1,001 Books You Must Read Before You Die.

2015 List

  1. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
  2. Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
  3. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
  4. Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift
  5. Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
  6. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bonte
  7. Jane Erye by Charlotte Bonte
  8. Native Son by Richard Wright
  9. Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
  10. The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desia
