I found this through GoodReads, thanks so much for doing it. I have read only 56 of the books, but have started some as well and not finished. It says I need to read 19 a year to complete in a lifetime (if I live to a ripe old age) I tend to read about 50-60 books a year so I should be able to do it, but do I want to put these ahead of all the others on my “to-read” list? I’m not so sure.
Well, I’ve read 77 of them. That just leaves me 20 books a year if I want to complete it. I’m not sure I’d want to read all of them, but there are some books on the list that I’d forgotten about that I’d like to read. Thanks for posting the very handy spreadsheet!
Love the spreadsheet! Thank you for sharing it! I went through the list just to “see” what I’ve read: 37. It will be fun to have a great looking spreadsheet to update as I read now.
Question. It’s an excel spread sheet, anyway I can load it onto a Mac? or otherwise find another download that could be compatible? I’d love to have the list on my laptop, but unlike my pc it’s a Mac. Anything you can do?

Accidentally posted twice, with two different emails. Sorry 🙁 Respond to the second one so I can get a notification please 🙂
It’s a good list and always good to have reading suggestions – but (as far as one can say this about a list of 1001 books) not very varied. Did we really need the complete works of Toni Morrison and Ian McEwan?
Thank you very much for doing that – must have taken you ages! I have read 89 books and need to read 18 a year until I die to complete the list. On my book club site we are having a challenge to see how many we can read each year. Last year I managed 9 and so far this year I have read about 4 or 5. I am really enjoying using the list to guide my reading, but with so many good books coming out each year it is difficult!
Thanks. What a lot of work you put into this. My stats:
70 books read = 6.99%
Some of the authors, I read another book by them and didn’t enjoy them. The list is interesting. Those who compiled the list have an affection for certain authors.
Thanks for the spreadsheet, really good to be able to keep a track of stuff like this and it is clear you’ve put a lot of work into it.
Read 29 so far but I’m only 18, didn’t expect to get that many to be honest.
I’m such an avid reader, and I’ve only read 28 of these! I’m just not one for the classics. Thanks for setting this up! It’s getting printed and put into my library bag. So i have a list of things to pick from.
This is a great service to all readers. Now, I am using your spreadsheet to have different kinds of book lists of my own. Thanks a lot!
you’re more than welcome BookCrazy
HI i think this list is a great idea. I’ve read just over 70 books so far but the new 1001 list has come out and i was wondering how that might impact on your reading? Will you switch over to the new list and read only the books on there or will you continue to read the old list?
I really thank you for creating this spread sheet downloadable. It saves a lot of time and reminds me about my reading goal. Thanks
This is awesome. Thanks so much for sharing this with us. Only 20 a year for the rest of my life…very doable.
36, and that’s counting the ones I dipped into and couldn’t get through. Like Tristram Shandy. Honestly, why does Boxall want to torture people with it?
Happily, there are quite a few that are already waiting on my shelf, and several more I’d LIKE to read.
Found 1001 books in the library and decided I need to own it; in Googling for a source, I found your spreadsheet – thanks so much for doing the work! I love the # books to read per year calculation! Got a lot of reading each year!
Thank you very much for sharing. It is really good to have this beautiful and well organised list. I saw titles that I have read, and some other on my book shelf that waiting for me to read them…
Thank you! This is way cool. Even though I don’t foresee ever reading everything, I love having the TBR list of titles that I do truly plan on reading. I’ve read 95 of them, and three of those are ones I’m astonished to see on his list, such as The Day of the Triffids. Interesting!!
Have you still got the Spreadsheet for the old 1001, as that’s the one I’m working on?!
Thanks 🙂 – Great spreadsheet!!
Sorry, I put the wrong email address!!
