My Book List


If you are sure you want to delete a book read, enter your userid and password below and press submit.


I've created a reading list using the following three sources:

  1. Modern Library's 100 Best Novels published since 1900 - The Board's List (B)
  2. Modern Library's 100 Best Novels published since 1900 - The Reader's List (R)
  3. NPR's 100 Best-Ever Teen Novels (T)

If a book didn't show up in a list, I assigned it a rank of 150 for that list and I then ranked the books by averaging the rankings in the three lists. (A)
