My lunch-time book reading for the last several years has been primarily taken from these three top 100 lists - one by the board of Modern Library, one by their readers, and then one by the Radcliffe College Publishing course.
I took the lists, combined them, crossed off the ones I already read, and then read the books that appeared on all three lists, then the books that appeared twice, etc. Currently reading "I, Cladius" by Robert Graves.
One note: as far as I can tell, all were all orignally written in English so no translations. Only American and/or UK writers (no Canadians!? for shame!)
