...that there wasn't a group for this. There are movie lists, and music lists, but I couldn't find a book list!
If this group is in fact redundant, the powers that be at EP are free to delete and direct me elsewhere.
I made this group because of the BBC list of 100 books...

I was browsing (at length) in a bookshop in Hannover that sell English books..(I prefer to read books in my own language) an assistant came and asked if she could help me..I said no, Thanks, I'm fine, she vanished, later..much later...when I got to the til with about 5 books, she...
I started jotting down books that I love. Books that I have read more than once. Books with characters that have stayed with me. I have 16, and that's without trying very hard to think of all that I have read and loved over the years.So how to pick 10?I guess I will go with what...

I tried to pick ten. I managed to make a list that was several hundred long and realized that I was not going to be able to pick even the top 100 best, or even the top 1000. Each title and author I write reminds me of another and another and so on until my head is spinning. I...

How can I possibly pick my top 10 books? There are too many amazing books to choose from.
