How many of these books have you read? Could we make a list of classic Greek Books?

The BBC believes most people will have read only 6 of the 100 books here. How do your reading habits stack up?

Instructions: Copy this. Look at the list and put a "yes" after those you have read.
An exclamation mark means i loved it. I would also love to add few, but no list will ever be conclusive.
