I really appreciate these 1001 lists. Someone had posted one of the movies and I actually bought the book. Now, I am thinking about buying some of these books. Thanks for all effort...so many to list. I hope I have many years left to watch all the movies and read all the books before I croak :)

Great list! Quite a few I've read, of course, but many I have wanted to for some time!
