Does anybody know where I can find a copy of the combined list without having to pay for it???


message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

I did but you have to pay

Linda | 275 comments I use this list, although it only contains 2006, 2008, and 2010 (not 2012). I copied and pasted it into a spreadsheet so I could keep track. 2012 only had 11 changes, so they were easy to add in.

Elizabeth (Alaska) Try the group bookshelf.

I think I will use the one Linda suggested since it has 3 of the 4 lists, thanks everybody!

Sandi | 227 comments That post might need a make-over. Lists of Bests does not exist anymore. 1MoreChapter won't load for me, so not sure what's there. The spreadsheets/app should probably have a warning that they are only available for money. And the official 1001 website seems to have the latest (2012) version only.

(I edited my post about the 2012 list, in case you didn't see!)

Charity (charityross) I will update the list thread and remove the Lists of Bests link. Here is another source for the combined lists (all editions):

Bonus: You can check off the ones you've read!


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

Omg Charity thank you so much!! This seems alot better


message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

I had found a combined list one on listology but was scared it was not legit. Would you know if it is or not?? That is what I have been using and been placing those books on my "to read" shelf

This was a really great source. I love having the covers. It seemed to match up with the app that I just got. I came up with: Your score: 306/1306 (23%) · · Rank: #6 of 588 users (top 1%) ·

The app says 307, so I probably just missed one --- it took a while;)!

It's fun but it's horrible for keeping updated because you can't quickly find the book you've just read by searching the entire list.

Agreed. It's not searchable, so that's a con. The spreadsheets and the app are great for easy searches and tracking, but they do cost money. There is a list on Listology that has the combined lists (4 editions) and the titles are listed alphabetical by title (although, they do alphabetize the articles -- a, an, the, etc., so that's a little strange):

message 15: by Charity (new)

Charity (charityross) I have updated the Group List thread with the original 2006 list and the additions made to the list in 2008, 2010, and 2012. I hope this helps!


message 16: by Nicola (new)

Nicola | 765 comments I've made myself a copy of the combined lists through ones I've taken from the internet. It didn't cost me anything other than a bit of time. I'll probably buy Arukoyami's one at some point though as I'm sure that will be much fancier.

I have combined all lists into an excel form and u can track ur progress on it. I've already entered some of mine although I haven't updated it for a while. You can just remove the "r" letter which I've put.

Mary (notfurlong) | 1 comments Nope. Dropbox says the file is deleted or the link is disabled.

Just so you know, this list is not complete. I have looked over it 3 times and cannot find
Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit. If you find it, can you tell me where it is? I'm trying to check it off my list.


message 20: by Michelle (new)

Michelle Bacon (raggedtig) | 11 comments Also, there is a 2018 update that has been released which the list challenge has not included. I've been tempted to make a new one on the list challenge site.


message 21: by Arukiyomi (new)

Arukiyomi | 270 comments 2018 update had not been released. It will be in the 4th of October.

That would be really cool.


message 26: by Michelle (new)

Michelle Bacon (raggedtig) | 11 comments I started doing it yesterday, but then it started slowing down the searches really bad.


message 27: by Bill (new)

Bill | 14 comments To find a book on the List Challenges site, do the following:
1. On any page of the list, click on the Print icon along the top of the list. The tags are: Checklist; Stats; Leaders; Vote; Comment icon; and Print icon. This will bring up the entire list in a printable page.
2. Use your browser's Find function (usually Ctrl-F) to find the book on the new web page. Searching for "Oranges" finds the book at #765. To find the page, divide the number by 40 and round up. So 765 / 40 = 19.125, and rounding up gets us page #20. So go to page #20 and your book will be at position #765.
