hey there... I see that you're creating your own list of 1001 books. Good for you!

You might be interested though in the spreadsheet that I've created for the official 1001 books list. Might just be interesting to track your progress with what you have read. If you're feeling like it, there's a version you can buy which allows you to tweak it as you want i.e. you could remove books from the official list and add your own ones in and the spreadsheet would still work its magic for you.

If you're interested, head over to HERE and get yourself a copy.
