The Top 100 Novels of All Time

Of course this list is bound to cause arguments or disagreements, but this enumeration is based on how many libraries (as tabulated by WorldCat) have these volumes on their shelves. Overwhelmingly, the volumes are American or English, and few are what you would label contemporary (with the exception of a couple of Harry Potter titles). Each novel is placed in a genre and the number of translations of the books is also given. How many have you read? (If my math is accurate, I have read 92 of them.) A fuller list of the top 500 novels is available and can be divided by genres; see how many science fiction novels made the grade.
