Entertainment Weekly compiled a list of ‘classic’ books written since 1983. This link is to the top 25. http://www.ew.com/ew/gallery/0,,20211702,00.html
From there you can access the top 100. I have read 4 of the top 25- On Writing by Stephen King, Into Thin Air by John Krakauer, The Liar’s Club by Mary Karr, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling. After that I’ve only read 4 of the last 75!
I’m not sure I think many of these will be considered classics in the future, but what do I know I’ve only read 8 of the 100. What do you think of the list?
