BBC The Big Read - Books 101-200

In April 2003 the BBC's Big Read began the search for the nation's best-loved novel, and they asked you to nominate your favourite books.

The countdown of the top 100 books was televised on BBC2. A further list of the books ranked from 101-200 was put on the BBC's website. The top 100 books can be found in a separate list here:

Penny What a pity people had to go and ruin the list. I would have liked to have seen the list as it was supposed to be...


message 2: by Laura (new)

Laura Penny - originally I had it in this order.

message 3: by Anna (new)

Anna Speed Well, it's fixed now :)


message 4: by Cindy (new)

Cindy :( why this list doesn´t have the like button? :(


message 5: by Elina (new)

Elina Just spend some time trying to find the like button, finally found out from some comments in some discussion, that like button is supposed to be at bottom of the list after last book (on the left side). No wonder this list (and the first 100 book list too) made it so hard and time consuming finding that button since neither list has it at all. Could there be a button so i can add list to my lists? Also, would it be possible for button to be in top of the list rather than at bottom.


message 6: by Aglaea (new)

Aglaea The list is static, meaning weirdos who can't leave stuff alone will add books when it isn't static. So when you lock it, the button goes away, and with that the chance to vote as well as like it. Tough luck, blame those people who cause us not to have nice things because of their selfishness.
