Le Monde's 100 Books of the Century
"Starting from a preliminary list of 200 titles created by bookshops and journalists, 17,000 French voted by responding to the question, "Which books have stayed in your memory?" (« Quels livres sont restés dans votre mémoire ? »).
The list of acclaimed titles mixes great novels with poetry and theatre, as well as the comic strip."
Ideas for a reading list. I have completely forgotten Vercors and many others. English-language books constitute 27% of the list. I was going to delete them but what the heck.
