I've read 44 of those.

Do try du Maurier's Rebecca sometime. It's rather haunting.

Brave New World- Huxley

So, you didn't like the Secret History? I thought it was a great book.

I mis-read it but it was typoed.
It said
"strikethrough the ones wish you never read"

I think they meant "which", but I read it as "wish you had never read".

I'm not sure why they list the complete works of Shakespeare and Hamlet separately. Same goes for Chronicles of Narnia and Lion the Witch & the Wardrobe.
