Yes, lots of famous and USA books missing. I'm a bad reader: I've given up on lots of admired books no doubt far too early. Or else I was deterred by having seen the film. I also tend to read what I think I'll like rather than just follow established canon. I've included some childhood favourites, e.g Alistair Maclean and Desmond Bagley (male action-adventure) books, I would probably like less now.
