Thank-you for being the person who thought of doing this blog - It's a great idea, and the things you focus on are almost always of interest to me. I'm enjoying your list of "best books to read before you die" but I don't want to lose the list (and the links) to the blogospheric ether - when you have completed the list, would it be possible to republish the whole list, or put it on a wiki somewhere, or something like that?

Wow, thanks for the feedback! I am glad you are enjoying it. I don't know anything about wikis, but fwiw I always post a monthly recap of all the blog posts. You'll be able to find it there. Thanks for reading!

Thankyou! I am thrilled you recommend Smollet, my favorite author in the world, to others. It's high time people started reading some serious satire. I hope they learn from it.
