Top 100 Lists: 100 Favourite Novels

The results from the BBC's search for the nation's best-loved novel:
  1. The Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien
  2. Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen
  3. His Dark Materials, Philip Pullman
  4. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams
  5. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, JK Rowling
  6. To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee
  7. Winnie the Pooh, AA Milne
  8. Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell
  9. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, CS Lewis
  10. Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë

Read the rest.

Would an American list be different? A Canadian one? How many of the top 100 have you read?

[Update: The Crusty Curmudgeon responds to this list, bolding all the ones he's read. ( I'd do that too, but it'd be rather embarassing.) He also gives us a list of 10 Canadian novels that he's enjoyed reading as well. Go see if you agree with what he's got to say]

Like top 100 lists? Then stick around for the rest of the month of June because I'll be posting a bunch of them.
