Booklovinglady I can't believe Pride and Prejudice is (was) the one and only book mentioned on this list.... There are so many books I want to read before I die; a hundred votes just isn't enough...


message 2: by struisvogel (last edited Jan 31, 2019 06:44AM) (new)

struisvogel Wanted to put the English versions at this list - as far as available - though I only could choose from the titles I've previously listed myself, which contain a lot of Dutch.
I'm in doubt whether the purpose is: books I have already read and highly recommend others, or books I haven't and literally want to read before I die. So I made a mixture of both and put the ones I haven't read yet on top of the favorites I recommend to you.

There is a possibility to shift between books on your own 'my books' list and a more general search ("Add books from: My Books or a Search"). If the book is already on this Listopia, it doesn't work though; it will be replaced by the existing book (or the most popular edition according to GR) the moment a librarian checks for duplicates.


~☆~Autumn♥♥ I deleted a couple that I have managed to read since I first voted on this list.

P I'm curious.... Are you going to read all of the books written by foreigners in their original language? Quite a feat.
