Have-you-read meme

I got this from kizmet_42:

From the British Museum, Libraries & Archives Council conducted a poll on the 30 books you should read before you die. I thought it would be a fun meme...so, bold the ones you've read and pass it on!

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy by JRR Tolkien
1984 by George Orwell
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
All Quiet on the Western Front by E M Remarque
His Dark Materials Trilogy by Phillip Pullman (This and not Harry Potter?) (Yeah, I got through the first two....)
Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks

The Lord of the Flies by William Golding
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
Tess of the d'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy

Hmmm. More than I thought; less than I perhaps should. Not a great list, imho, but some good stuff is certainly on there.
