Dr. Peter Boxall's "1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die (2008 edition)"
I have decided to take on the monumentally crazy task of entering the new version of the 1001 BYMR list. This list happens to go in chronological order, like the actual book, instead of reverse chronological.
There are 284 new books on the list – so this list is quite a bit different than the 2006 version. The entries tend to be more international, but also heavier on modern work. The pre-1700 and 1700s categories of the previous list have been lumped together into pre-1800.
Please please please do not make any changes unless it is to better follow the list source. Thanks!
