I always wanted to be able to say I read all of these books on such and such lists.
Or was able to fulfill a goal or something.
And on my Shelfari account, I have joined this group where they are attempting to read all the books listed in the book named: “1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die”. And I joined that group more than a year ago, and I just rediscovered it. 😀
Going through the whole list just now, I found out that I officially remember reading 22 books only. When I say remember, I mean remember the details in the book and not in the movie depicting the book. SO many of the books listed have a movie, and it honestly confused me, what am I remembering? the book or the movie. Therefore, I did not count many of the books as if I read them.
Am I being too harsh? NO WAY! The book is always MUCH MUCH better than the movie, at least for ME 😀
Something else I noticed; is that 15 of the 22 books I read are of the 1800s. I do not know what to think of that, but I guess I just like the old classical novels. 😀
