PostSubject: How Many of These Books Have You Read?   Thu Jun 30, 2011 5:06 pm

I think the BBC estimates that most people will have read, at most, 6 of these books. (I could be mistaken, this might not be that list, I don't know I have so many things saved in my bookmarks lolol.)

Anyway. Here's 100 books. Bold the ones you've read! Very Happy This list has my own choices bolded.

Sad.... it's so sad in Egypt you can hardly find these books! I'm lucky to have read these ones:


THe HP series by Jk Rolling (I'm juicing it for all it's got so I'm going to count it as 7 >.>)

Reading Animal Farm

And I read Charlotte's Web.

And when I thought Winne the Pooh was cute I read the Book....


So that's a 10 in Total.


Of Course I saw some of the books in the list in MOVIE version but I'm not going to count them cause a Book beats a Movie anyday.
