100 Greatest Novels

I recently completed a long-term effort to read as many of the most highly regarded works of fiction ever written, using several greatest books lists as my guide. After doing so, I created my own list of 100 greatest novels or series. Most are well-known; a few are some of my own favorites. (This list does not contain plays, short story collections, poetry, or works of nonfiction.)
