Add to my lists | Print this list

The Green Dragoneers at LibraryThing.com nominated and voted upon the best fantasy books to read.

No, this doesn’t add up to 1001 books UNLESS you count all the books in the series of which the only the first gets mentioned in this list. For instance, The Fellowship of the Ring is the first of three books.
