Good Reading Guide Books on a Theme: High Adventure to Journalism

See how well-read you are in certain areas or explore more books on your favourite themes. Sourced from "Bloomsbury Good Reading Guide" (Nick Rennison, 8th edn, 2009).
01-11: High Adventure
12-18: Higher (?) Education
19-25: Historical Adventure
26-35: Horror
36-45: The Human Comedy
46-57: India
58-70: Ireland
71-79: Israel
80-90: Japan
91-98: Journalism
BTW, I realise there is some duplication of books over the challenges in this series. This is because of overlap in the themes.
