Another one from Facebook

Thought you all might like this one.

Apparently the BBC reckons that most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here.
Copy and paste – put an X next to the ones you have read. If I tagged you for this note, it's because I believe that you actually may pick up a book or two every once in a while.

    Great list! 41-ish. I haven't read the Bible cover to cover, but I feel like over the years I've read the equivalent of the whole thing.

    Haha. I thought about saying I've read the Bible because I feel like I know the stories well, but then I realized that I never actually read it and it's only been read to me. Like my baptist friends would say, Catholics don't read the Bible. 🙂
