By popular request, our second list will be BOOKS.
How it works:
You rank the best 2, 5, 10 or 20 books of this century so far in order.
Post them in here or DM them to me by 9am next Wednesday.
Please format as BOOK - AUTHOR and don’t abbreviate the titles.
I’ll do some mathematical gubbins and produce the definitive DiS best books of this century!
For the purposes of these lists, the year 2000 is included in the 21st century. Yes, I know it’s not technically correct, no I don’t care that it’s making your eye twitch.
For a book to qualify, it should originally have been published in English since 1st January 2000. This means those nice clothbound Penguin Classics don’t count as they’re just new editions of old books.
To make the list more meaningless, both fiction and non-fiction are welcome.
Buried in my little joke-ette was a truth that I never feel particularly qualified to comment on these things as I have only listened to or read things that I have stumbled across by accident and who knows what I have missed?
Seems a bit arrogant for me to comment on what the best book of the 20th C is.
