I have always wanted to read a few of the Ian Fleming novels the James Bond movies are based on. It took some time but I was able to get a list of the books in chronological order. I'm posting the list here, for any other 007 fans who might find the information useful. Amazon has a similar list called "The James Bond Series" but I believe mine is more complete. If I get some time, I'll add the later books written by John Gardner and Raymond Benson.

Casino Royale (James Bond Novels)
Ian Fleming's Live and Let Die
Moonraker (James Bond Novels)
Diamonds Are Forever (James Bond Novels)
From Russia with Love (James Bond Novels)
Doctor No (James Bond Novels)
Goldfinger (James Bond Novels)
For Your Eyes Only (James Bond)
Thunderball
Spy Who Loved Me (James Bond)
On Her Majesty's Secret Service
You Only Live Twice (The James Bond Classic Library)
The Man with the Golden Gun (Signet Books)
Octopussy (James Bond)
James Bond in Ian Fleming's the Living Daylights and a Quantum of Solace


Note: A fan wrote me and mentioned another author, Robert Markham (aka Kingsley Amis), who wrote this 007 book Colonel Sun that picks up where Man With the Golden Gun left off. There are additional authors such as Christopher Wood who have also written novelizations of the movies, but that's opening up a whole new can of worms.

Anyways, click on the above links and they'll take you to the various Bond books here on Amazon. Enjoy!
