Andrew Can you remove books?
This list is seriously flawed...
I won't list all the books that should not be on this list, but here are a few:
The Kite runner: just about everybody's read this...
(or maybe the list name should be changed to "books most people have read" or something??)
Same goes for,e.g.,:
Life of Pi; How to read a book; A thousand splendid suns; the bookseller of Kabul; Zen and the art...

Anyone can add books to this list.
