NOT the 50 Books You Must Read Before You Die

To quote The Telegraph: "Last week, Michael Gove said that children should read 50 books a year. For grown-ups anxious to keep up, Iain Hollingshead offers some tongue-in-cheek literary advice".
I suspect the more books on the list you have read, the more enjoyment you should derive from the source article.
