Abi (abi_b) I've read:

Hans Christian Andersen's Complete Fairy Tales
Pride & Prejudice
One Hundred Years Of Solitude
Midnight's Children

I always do really badly on the 'best books ever' kind of lists, although this time I seem to have read a shockingly low number! Going through the list, I found there were a lot of authors listed that I'd read (Dickens, Hemingway, Bronte, Shakespeare), just never that exact title
