Apparently the BBC reckons most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here. Instructions in case you are bored (and/or procrastinating) and want your own tally:

1) Look at the list and put an 'x' after those you have read.
2) Add a '+ ' to the ones you LOVE.
3) Star (*) those you plan on reading.
4) Tally your total at the bottom.
5) Put in a note with your total in the subject
