  1. Great list! Must read the ones I never knew about. They forgot a whole of others. But it’s individual taste?

  2. A poll always leave some people crying blue murder when it doesn’t match their list. I went in earnest search of the titles in the public libraries but it proved futile.

  3. #3 and #8, never heard of them before and #1, #5, #6 and #10 are classics and also used as Literature texts for O Level.

  4. The Beach, could it have been made into a movie? Leonardo Di-Caprio?

  5. Yes, The Beach was made into a movie. It’s hard to find the classic books in our public libraries as they have been supplanted by modern fiction.

  6. It’s a pity then! Perhaps the NLB should review this policy?

  7. Hi Roger, I was referred to your very interesting blog by Andy. He would like to send you an invite. Hope you could make it.

    Andy, you referred me to http://www.rogerpoh.blogspot.com which doesn’t exist. Luckily, I could find my way around in blogosphere. Haha.

    About your suggestion that NLB should review their policy, we have a librarian in our midst too. I will ask him about that.

  8. Hi Victor, thanks for dropping by. Hope you can find the time to share with us your views.
