The Big Read

I'm toying with trying to get through all the books in the BBC's "The Big Read" list. So far I've read the following:

1. The Lord of the Rings, JRR Tolkien
2. Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen
5. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, JK Rowling
7. Winnie the Pooh, AA Milne
8. Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell
9. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, CS Lewis
15. The Catcher in the Rye, JD Salinger
18. Little Women, Louisa May Alcott
22. Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone, JK Rowling
23. Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets, JK Rowling
24. Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban, JK Rowling
25. The Hobbit, JRR Tolkien
26. Tess Of The D'Urbervilles, Thomas Hardy
29. The Grapes Of Wrath, John Steinbeck
35. Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, Roald Dahl
40. Emma, Jane Austen
43. The Great Gatsby, F Scott Fitzgerald
46. Animal Farm, George Orwell
52. Of Mice And Men, John Steinbeck
53. The Stand, Stephen King
63. A Tale Of Two Cities, Charles Dickens
75. Bridget Jones's Diary, Helen Fielding

Hey! That's more than 20% through the list. Of course, most of those books were read a good 10-15 years ago and with a vastly different amount of life experience.
