The List: What books should everyone read before they die?
1,000 Books to Read Before You Die is a personal library of lifetime reading, a compendium of engaging essays (snippets from which appear on this site) presenting insights and reflections gleaned from my life as a reader and bookseller. You can browse and comment on The 1,000 below—or join my ongoing conversation with fellow readers by adding your own favorites to The Next 1,000. I hope you'll buy my book and subscribe to my newsletter, too. Happy reading! — James Mustich
