The list author says: "This quest began years ago, when my brother and I would read literary classics, and compare notes. Last year, in trying to determine the 100 must reads of the 20th century, we compiled a list of the greatest novels. We narrowed it down by trying to include only novels written in English in the 20th century, but others sneaked onto the list. That list, now over 3000 books long, gives me a jumping off point for books I should read. Below, find some of my favorites so far of 2010.
