[quote="vCLaW"]I'm sceptical as to whether that list is actually anything to do with the BBC. Its rather different from their Big Read top 100 list, see http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/bigread/top100.shtml
Its also inconsistent as to how it groups some series of books together, but not others. And it has some books listed individually, as well as the complete series, eg Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe / Chronicles of Narnia.
I also don't know where they got the statistic that most people have only read 6 out of 100 of the books.
I think its just another internet meme, with a list someone has made up.
agreed, if you've read the complete works of shakespeare you will have Hamlet, so you score two points... not sure if that matters though tbh I suppose its just has few tweaks from BBC Big Read
