an openly-editable list of books for a lifetime
Inspired by a thread on MetaFilter, here's an openly-editable spreadsheet I pulled together from all the great suggestions in the thread, listing classic works of literature according to its author's age on publication. The idea is to read a book every year by an author who was the same age as you now are when they wrote it. This year I'm reading, apparently, Charles Dickens. The list is open; feel free to add the missing years.
