    They must really like The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe for it to appear twice...

    Goodness knows. Maybe some Eng Lit graduate came up with it? Or they took a quick straw poll round the office?

    I think they did a survey of guardian readers. Maybe it should read 'Top 100 books Guardian readers can't live without'.

    It must have been done in a hurry, too. If you decide to put up such a list, which is questionable enough as it is, you shouldn't make it easier on you by simply listing whole works of an author. Decide upon the hundred, or admit that such a thing doesn't work at all.

    Lord preserve us...

    Seems they really like Shakespeare too. Not that I object to Shakespeare, far from it, but surely Hamlet is contained in the Complete Works of Shakespeare.

    Now this truly explains everything.

    Seems like this person really likes the classics.
    At first I thought it was from the all time best sellers list until I saw that the bible was at #6. Last I heard the bible was the most read book in the entire history of man with the Koran coming up close. The person who wrote this is most definitely and English literature expert probably probably in his/her middle ages.
