I suppose that this list could be used as a test of how well-read one is...I hadn't heard of Dream of the Red Chamber before, but I've read all of the others, apart from The Koran and The Da Vinci Code. I absolutely refuse to read Dan Brown, or watch the movie adaptations of his books. I don't need to try something to know that it's rubbish. Someone once conned me into reading The Celestine Prophecy, and if I hadn't been on a Jumbo jet crossing the Atlantic at the time, I'd have thrown it at the nearest wall! To make matters worse, it was the only book that I had with me, so I ended up memorising the in-flight magazines.
