I have no idea what makes a top 100 list. But I figure that if you read everything on that list and agree that at least 50 of those titles belong there, it's probably a credible list.
That sounds like fun. Making the list but I think tomorrow's list would be different from today's. I saw one from 20 years ago recently and I couldn't remember some of the books. Of course, that happens more and more.
When I looked at this particular list, I saw that there were more than half I hadn't read. Others, like A Coffin for Dimitrios, I read, I have no idea how many years ago. I wanted to give myself a base to work from. It is like taking English 30 and 40, Shakespeare, Chaucer, Faulkner, etc., when I was in college. It gives me a base from which to judge everything else.I have to confess, so far I have cherry-picked some, two Hillerman's for example.
