breaking bad

Listen

Hey, it's ages since I did a book list post. The Telegraph have published a list of 110 books that make 'the perfect library'. They are sorted by category:

Classics
Poetry
Literary
Romantic
Children's
SF
Crime
Books that changed the world
Books that changed your world (this appears to be 'middle brow books that Telegraph readers might have actually read')
History
Lives


Perhaps too long to give the whole list. I've read all the poetry, and almost all the children's and SF and crime, but only one book in the literary category. Does 'literary' have to mean awful books that I hate? Apparently yes.
