I read the fucking book!

I READ THE FUCKING BOOK!
Recently I stumbled on this flow chart, while I was browsing the webs:



Aside from the informative value of this flow chart, I thought we might as well start to play a little game.

Who has read most of these titles? Btw, book series just count as one (i.e. Tolkien's LotR counts as one and not three).

I am right now scoring 16. With a huge tendency to the south and east (I am not such a big fantasy fan).

And you? Any book you can wholeheartedly recommend?

6 for me, mostly in the west.

I have read a lot of books, but not a whole lot of it on this list apparently

The Mass Effect novels aren't on it, but Terry Goodkind is? I can only respond to such an offense with fire.

Kinda all over the place.

And not even a single Jack Vance title on that thing, as far as I can see.

Epic fail, because Vance trumps all.

I found 9, all but one on the right side (Going Postal, for the record).

To jump on the 'my favourite isn't there' bandwagon, no Revelation Space.

Kind of surprised to not see Chronicles of Narnia...I have only read a few of the books...but have seen most of the titles that jumped out at me in the form of movies...

Admittedly I don't read much these days, but I was a total bookworm in my youth. We didn't have your fancy Playboxes or X-Stations back then dang-nabbit!

Consequently, I clocked up a respectable 29 titles from all over that list - although I can't claim to have read every book in some of the series, just the first couple of Sword of Truth, and Song of Ice and Fire for example. And I've dipped in and out of Iain M. Banks Culture novels. On that note, rest in peace Mr Banks. A great novelist who will be missed.

Sheesh, I didn't make that list, so please do not lynch me!

Still, there are titles I want to read, such as a few Asimov's and Heinlein's, among others.
