England's Top 100

For the full list see my friend Jessica's or KageNeko's postings.
I'm also not a huge Pratchet fan and he had way to many books on the list.

England's Top 100 Books - Ones I've read (or seen otherwise)

About 1/3 out of the list isn't too shabby.

Alice's Adventures In Wonderland, Lewis Carroll
Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, Roald Dahl (Book and Movie)
A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens (Book and Lots of Movies)
The Clan Of The Cave Bear, Jean M Auel (Book and Movie) - not that great really
The Count Of Monte Cristo, Alexandre Dumas
Dune, Frank Herbert (Book, Movie, and mini-series)
Emma, Jane Austen (Movie)
Great Expectations, Charles Dickens (Book and Movie - movies can't do this justice)
The Great Gatsby, F Scott Fitzgerald
Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets, JK Rowling (Book and movie)
Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire, JK Rowling
Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone, JK Rowling (Book and movie)
His Dark Materials (trilogy), Philip Pullman - (first one only Golden Compass, wasn't impressed)
The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, Douglas Adams
The Hobbit, JRR Tolkien (Book and Movie)
Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë (Movie only)
The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, CS Lewis (Book and Cartoon movie) * Recommended
Lord Of The Flies, William Golding (Book and bad movie, another one movies can't do justice)
The Lord Of The Rings, JRR Tolkien
Magician, Raymond E Feist
Of Mice And Men, John Steinbeck (Book and Play) This really should be seen onstage as a play.
Our school drama department did this and brought the house to tears, it's still the best play I've ever seen including the professional ones I've seen
at the Alley Theatre.

On The Road, Jack Kerouac
Pride And Prejudice, Jane Austen
The Stand, Stephen King (Mini-series)
A Tale Of Two Cities, Charles Dickens (Book and Movie) Boring.
Tess Of The D'urbervilles, Thomas Hardy (Very unsatisfying book.)
To Kill A Mockingbird, Harper Lee (Book and Movie w/ G. Peck ) * Both highly recommended.
Treasure Island, Robert Louis Stevenson (Book and Movies)
Ulysses, James Joyce (parts and excerpts)
Wuthering Heights, Emily Brontë (Book and bad movie)
