Reese "Best 10 Books That You've Read" means best fifteen?
Twenty? Thirty? We're not going to agree on what "best" means. We're probably not going to agree on what "book" means. And I doubt that we can agree on what "read" means. But can't we agree that "10" means "ten"?


message 2: by Mike (the Paladin) (last edited Jun 06, 2010 11:26AM) (new)

Mike (the Paladin) Why can we have 100 books on our top 10 books of all time list?

Of course we'll all have a different 10....but....


message 3: by Reese (new)

Reese Mike,

We may be "on the same page" -- perhaps I didn't make my complaint clear. I was objecting to some voters' decision to vote for more than ten books when the list's title and instructions call for choosing only ten favorites.

Reese


Mike (the Paladin) I know...I've stopped at 8 so far. Listing my favorite books of all time I'm going slow. But I did wonder about the 100 slots for my top 10 books. lol


message 5: by Mike (the Paladin) (last edited Jun 07, 2010 06:44PM) (new)

Mike (the Paladin) Filled in 10 and stopping. I will try to enforce this on myself and remove one if I want to change the list. Interesting exercise...hard to narrow down of course, there are a lot of books I'd like to add. Today's books seem to come in "series" so often, there are a lot I would list, but it would require 5, 10, or more volumes for some "stories". There are 3 "omnibus" type editions on the list already where more than one novel has been published in a single volume.


message 6: by Bryan (new)

Bryan Looking at most of the books chosen for this list is depressing.


Mike (the Paladin) That's true of most of these "best ever lists".


message 8: by Katherine (new)

Katherine This is tough-any book I read leaves a lasting impression on me, whether positive or negative. I did stick to only 10 because that was the request, although it is very tempting to continue. I didn't choose to answer why I chose any particular book, because all of my choices have left lastimg impressions and memories, the characters are my friends, family, and in some cases, my greatest fears.

Pablo What if some of our favorite books aren't on this list? Sorry if I am missing something but I just joined.

Susanna - Censored by GoodReads It's easy to add books to lists. At the top of the list, at the tab "Add Books to this List," next to "All Votes." There you can either search your own bookshelves, or do a general search of GoodReads.
