1000 Book List Project

As youngsters growing up my Dad was always giving my siblings and I great books to read. There were only a handful of books that he gave us that I disliked and then I could still appreciate their literary value. The template he used to give us books was the 1000 Book List. I found it HERE and so now my new project is to read all of the books that I didn't get read back then. :) I'm going to go ahead and skip the 1st-3rd grade set of books but the rest I'm going to try my best to read over the course of the rest of my life. :) I just copied the list off the website but I highly encourage you to go to the website and take a look. :)
If I've already read it it then it's highlighted in yellow. If I've already written a review it's linked and as I read and write reviews for them I'll link my reviews. If it's in bold that means it's on my current Classics Club list but I haven't read it yet. This list won't normally list all of the book by an author but will just say "and others" so I've tried to add the other novels that I'm familiar with by that author. Some of these books I'm honestly not sure if I have read them or not and I'll have to look in my Dad's database (he kept track of the books we read) and check as time allows. For now I have question marks by them. This list will always be a working list but someday I hope to be able to finish it. :)
