Mousseline au Gratin; How many have you read? — 11 Comments

  1. I love these kind of lists!! I’ve read 62 on this list so far (or is it 61 because “The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe” is the first book of “The Narnia Chronicles”?)
    But I have one small objection. If you look through the BBC pages to find the article that says that the BBC believes the average is 6 out of 100, you won’t find it. You will find many of the books on this list on “BBC’s Big Read” though:
    In April 2003 the BBC’s Big Read began the search for the nation’s best-loved novel, and we asked you to nominate your favourite books.

    As for your mousseline: no errors there; it looks delicious!!

  2. Interestingly, you and I have read many of the same ones and NOT read many of the same ones. But you really, really must go out and get “The Wind in the Willows” and “Charlotte’s Web.” I loved “A Town Like Alice” too. Of these, and I agree it’s a strange list, I have read 52.

  3. I highlighted 86 of them, and I don’t count Enid Blyton as a miss because I read so much of her other stuff. I’ve got the rest on a reading list now.

  4. I did this a while ago on Facebook and think it was more than half, I love reading. Do you know the site Goodreads? It helps me keep track of what I’ve read because I have a memory like a sieve.

  5. I love seeing this list because it makes me feel so good that I’ve read so many. Way more than six.
    Man that Mousseline looks so delicious! Creamy heavenly potatoes.

  6. Elizabeth, I’d better get reading! Of course, I re-read so many all the time… I can’t afford to keep me in new books – and we don’t have a library.
    Zoomie, I wonder if reading Charlotte’s Web would get my over my fear of spiders? That’s why I haven’t read it LOL
    Simona, well done!
    manningroad, I read a lot of them at school as well.
    Way to go, Catofstripes!
    Ulrike, I’ve never ready Winnie the Poo! For shame!
    Karen, now that’s a surprise ;-))
    Ina, I have always read a lot – too much, some have said 😉
    Sasa, I do know it, and look at what other people are doing….
    Joanne, absolutely right – I wouldn’t have posted it if I’d only read 6 LOL
