Here is TIME magazine's list of 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present. We can proudly claim to have read 19% of the list, as far as we can remember, and even more proudly claim to have read half of 3% of the list. Of the approximately 79% we have not read, we've seen the movies of 2%. So, to sum up, at least we can read, Fantasia.
As well, here is TIME magazine's list of 100 best all-time movies. We won't bore you with our statistics (which are obviously more impressive than with the books), though we will ecstatically point out that The English Patient is nowhere to be found. On either list.
