This list is an amalgamation of two lists. The book challenge on  facebook (http://apps.facebook.com/booklistchallenge/List/?l=1) and BBC The Big Read http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/bigread/top100.shtml
Although the facebook list states it is from BBC it is likely just a copy of the Big Read with a few tweaks. I have taken all books from both lists and removed most of the children books (I've read them as a child) and fantasy books (just not my thing) to get my final 100 list. Wish me luck!
