1,000 Famous Books You Should Read

Here is a list of 1,000 famous and popular books. I do not mean to say these are the best 1,000 books ever, as I have not read many of these. These are just 1,000 famous books that are frequently talked about. So, how many have you read? Have you read all 1,000? If you haveā€¦ that is impressive and we are going to need to see some proof. Enjoy!
(I have come to realize that "As I Lay Dying", by William Faulkner is on here twice. If you have read it, lucky for you, we are running a read one, get two deal now.)
