Author Comments: 

About 20 books shy of 600 in the list.

Originally created by theduckthief but altered (for good or bad) by who knows how many others, including me. In italics are personal notes for where I can find many of the books I've not yet read.

Just what is the origin of this list? I've found 1 error and corrected it.
An American Tragedy is written by Theodore Dreiser.

Hi

As you've mentioned this list is an amalgam of my original list and someone else's, not sure who. My list was a combination of book lists. I was so tired of having three or four book lists so I combined them. My list looks markedly different from this one now as I've just done a major update. It's now quite a bit longer than this one.

Thanks for the acknowledgement at the bottom and good luck with your list!
