is a program that specifically boost your body’s natural fat burning hormones,and capitalize the hormonal shift that happens in your body after you turn 40.

You will never find a groundbreaking, cutting edge template like this.

is a far­reaching book with chapters ranging from simple things like making tasty bark­bread like people did when there was no food—to building a traditional backyard smokehouse… and many, many, many more. It is a simple people who know a lost skill very well.

you to become an in-demand voice over artist with ease. ranging from the plain old auditions to your own marketing efforts.

The latter shows you what you need to do to be able to ask, and receive correspondingly, the rates you REALLY and should deserve.

1923 seems arbitrary, is there meaning behind the year choice?

That was the year TIME was first published. It is explained in the second sentence of the article.

It's interesting the number of books on this list that were either banned, censored or burned during their lifetimes. The Grapes of Wrath, Lolita, Lord of the Flies, all of these saw bannings and I'm certain I missed some. Greatness, apparently, could be construed as being iconocalstic yet groundbreaking and influential - which is a definition I appreciate.

In that spirit though, I would have liked to see a mention of Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. A near-pornographic science fiction novel which was no less influential for its genre, I think it stands the test of being influential yet groundbreaking.

Love that Dog Soldiers is on here, great book. Definitely one of my favorites. Also saw a few others I've read that I was pleased to see included, as well as some I've been meaning to read. I know Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas usually isn't considered a novel, but I could've seen it being placed here. Was a little shocked nothing by Charles Portis or Edward Abbey is here. I know they aren't the most well known authors, but they're impact and influence is undeniable and have written a number of great ones between them.

I am not surprised that Pynchon's books appeared but I remember a friend of

Mine reading Gravitys Rainbow back in the early 90s and I thought Phew: better you than Me! I love a big thick book but I also like to get lost in a story not just in words, lol. Perhaps I can revisit that, but I doubt my patience has improved since then.

I'm shocked that I've only read 8 on the list, so I have plenty to go. I'm going to do this-read the entire list. As soon as I get thru A Little Life - I will start the list.

I wonder how long it will take me??

My favs cannot be on your list - due to years written - Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights -- but also The Good Earth , Pearl S Buck? Not on the list? Also, Shanataram? Ehem, sirs please reread those two for imclusion on a future list! Also another contender (my personal list) the Goldfinch - absolutely engaging and heartbreaking and powerful.

Your list is good. If you're around in another 30 years let's get a redo, and start at books after 1970.

Can't wait to start my challenge of reading these good picks!!

Jorge Luis Borges never wrote a novel, but was the best writer of the 20th century. I recommend them to everyone. The book published in English is FICTIONS of Penguin publishers.

i feel that many on the list can be replaced and the bias' on some of the reviews such as stating that Stanley Kubrick's version of the literary masterpiece A clockwork orange  even attempted to surpass the novel is absurd not only is the movie sub-par aside from the acting it isn't even formed around the meaning of the actual full story it's based around the american version missing the last chapter. also even though not widely known any Tahar Ben Jelloun novel belongs on this list. 

ex: This Blinding Absence of Light

Agreed with most of the book list...but am shocked that not one of John Banville's books appeared!!

My subjective choice among his many novels would be "Ghosts" and "Book of Evidence"...though

it was "The Sea" that won the Booker Prize.

Decent list. Not going to please everybody, but still well thought out and mostly about right.

There are two great books I am missing form that list: Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance, by Robert Pirsig and Lila, the sequel from the same author.

I  agree with Watership Down, but also need at least one Ayn Rand and 

without questionse , can make a case for James Lee Burke and

Kazantazakis' The Last Temptation of Christ which is a masterful work

I read non-stop

Something of Par Lagerkvist's (The Sybil - Death of Ahasuerus) And something by Isak Dinesen (Karen Blixen) Anything would do - Out of Africa isn't her best but pick any one.  Tropic of Cancer and The Painted Bird should come off. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Gone with the Wind aren't in the same league - they should go on a B list. Anyway - I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot of even better ones. Give me a few days and I'll come up with a more. It's too late right now. The Greatest novel ever written (well - I understand that there's more than one greatest novel ever written of course) is The Brothers Karamazov. Second greatest is Galsworthy's Forsyt Saga. Both plumb the depths in completely different ways.

Too Late the Phalarope should be on the list as well.

Or else "Cry the Beloved Country". At least one of them.
