Why is Little Women there twice? And how come the Harry Potter boxed set qualifies? :?

FIX!
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

On the plus side, only 57 people voted for Twilight. :) But on the negative side, surely more people would have voted more than 57 for a Pratchett book.

I guess one of Terry's problems is that his books divide people so much on which is their favourite. :?

And bloody The Time Traveller's Wife is there twice. Ayiyiyiyi...

I've read 20 of the books on the list. :)
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.
