What an odd, odd list. But apparently I've read 80 of them.

There's a thing I found that I put on my blog--101 Things in 1001 Days--but for the more ambitious I say there should be a combining of that list with this one to make, "1001 Books in 1001 Days."

That would be a touch more challenging, especially when you get to Day 723...
