Ph | 14 comments At people's request, I've uploaded the list to a Google Document, which everyone should be able to view.

You might also be able to import it for your own use...but I don't really know the limitations of the program.

Shigi | 3 comments If you have a gmail/google account you can just hit copy and it'll import it into your google docs. You can also import/export it in various formats, I think.

Thanks for doing this!

Jelenie (fivethousandbooks) | 1 comments Thanks so much for the list!

I've exported it into another excel document so I can tick off whatever I've read and make notes, etc.

Joel (joelneff) There's another copy of the list online at

which has the advantage of being in checklist format.

On a related note, is anyone interested in adding the books to the group bookshelf?

Ph | 14 comments once i add them all to my own account i'm going export them and then import them into the group account...hopefully it will be a slow couple of weeks at work so i can finish it.

Barbara Wow! Thanks so much. What a great help this will be.

Liz M There may be another way to do this. I'm sure some enterprising soul has already created an listmania list of all the books. With the click of one button, all the books on a listmania list can be added to a wishlist. And Amazon wishlists can be imported to your goodreads shelves.

Yelena Malcolm | 109 comments This seems like it would be a good tool to have so I'm working on it. So far I have 1-100, and I'll work on getting the rest up as soon as possible:

Yelena Malcolm | 109 comments P.S. Listmania lists can only contain 40 items, this looked like the only way to get them in one place (without making 26 lists)

Christine | 5 comments Thanks!

I'm kind of a dummy with there a way I can switch it to alphabetical by author using this one?

Kim | 3 comments Thanks. I copied the list to a folder in Google Document where I can make notes.

Yelena Malcolm | 109 comments Ok, I got them all down. Now I'll look into alphabetizing. But at least they're in one place:

Arukiyomi | 260 comments Not to outdo Ph's great effort on behalf of the group, I should let you know that I've had the list online for a while now. You can download an Excel spreadsheet that will automatically total those you've read.

Get the spreadsheet at

Cathy | 31 comments I've been using Arukiyomi's spreadsheet, and it's really great. Not only does it automatically total what you've read, it tells you what percentage of the list you've covered and how many books a year you'll need to read to finish before you die, with seperate stats for male and female expected lifetimes. It makes my geeky little heart sing with joy.
