    I wish they had decided that a fewer number would suffice, but there are a few titles that caught my eye. Interesting list, anyway, selected according to an unusual criterion.
    Thanks for posting.

    Interesting. I have only read 1 of those: Do Android Dream of Electric Sheep. Normally on these kinds of lists, I find that I have read more.

    I've read:

    The trouble with physics (made my brain turn inside out)
    The Dark Is Rising (read this when I was a kid, and was the first book I read under the duvet with a torch I was so desperate to finish it)

    Good list isn't it. Now I have some more books to add to my wish list :lol:
