The mission, should you choose to accept it: discover something new. And our reading lists shall be your treasure map. Since we do not lack sources for newer reading material, most of the books contained in our lists were originally published prior to 1965. Some are popular classics, others are little known works.

Unlike many lists, ours are not intended to be comprehensive; you will never find a 50 best or even a top 100, for that would suggest that literature has arrived and simply cannot rise to greater heights. Balderdash! We refuse to believe it!

Naturally, we intend to add more as time goes on. What and when? Well, that’s just part of the intrigue. So without further ado…

Here are the reading lists available to date:

A year of literary greatness

Medieval literature

200 books

Extraordinary fiction
