Oh dude. That is so tempting. I have been mesmerized with that list since it came out. I don't know though...10 books in 10 months.

Dude.

I have two of the books on your list. Doctor Zhivago and Cloud Atlas. I'll be watching for your reviews! :)

That sounds like fun. I might have to read along in spirit. Maybe I can look for titles that overlap the Modern Library list...

By the way I loved the Mysteries of Udolpho--it's great fun. I'd like to read some of her other books now.
