40 Books to Read before You Die [for the Kindle] (to be cont'd)

A Listmania! list by AIROLF (USA)
(VINE VOICE)   
The list author says: "The BBC believes most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books on this list (Amazon limits lists to 40 items - be on the lookout for parts 2 and 3 of this list). How do your reading habits stack up?

All selections were chosen from the available Kindle books. I tried to pick the cheapest offerings (or freebies, where available)."
