Good Reading Guide Books on a Theme: Larger Than Life to New York to Other Peoples, Other Times

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).
01-08: Larger Than Life
09-19: Latin America
20-33: London
34-42: Madness
43-50: Many Generations
51-62: The Middle Ages
63-69: Money
70-80: Music
81-90: New York
91-100: Other Peoples, Other Times
BTW, I realise there is some duplication of books over the challenges in this series. This is because of overlap in the themes.
