100 Books to Read in a Lifetime – Chosen by Amazon Book Editors in the United Kingdom 0 comments

Amazon in the United Kingdom recently released their 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime. This list was hand-selected by the Amazon.co.uk Books and Kindle editorial team.
Ezequiel Szafir, Vice President, Kindle Content, EU, stated:

With 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime, we set out to build a roadmap of a literary life that takes readers from their childhood favourites through to modern classics, and all the best books in between. Over many months, the team passionately debated and defended the books we wanted on this list, now we can’t wait to hear what customers have to say about our selection.

 
Some fun facts about the 100 Books:
• Oldest book on the list: Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift (1726)
• Most recently published book on the list: The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes (2011)
• Number of books on the list written by UK authors: 65
• Books on the list that inspired the most internal debate: Freakonomics by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson and Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz
• A few books that were unanimously chosen: Lord of the Flies by William Golding, Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh and Bridget Jones’s Diary by Helen Fielding
