The National Endowment for the Arts in the U.S. compiled a list of the top 1oo books and asks how many you've actually read. The Big Read (which is an initiative of the NEA designed to restore reading to the center of American culture) estimates that the average adult has only read 6 of the books on this list.
At first count, I have read 38 books on the list. This blog chronicles my attempt to read more quality rather than quantity. To see the list, click here.
