I've read 49 of those. Some are a bit of a cheat though as there are 7 Harry Potters and many Sherlock Holmes books.

Sorry for the delay in replying.

The list seemed a bit odd to me, as it doubled up on a few of the series, listing an individual book as well as the generalised group.

I got 43, not counting Harry Potter because I only read the first one and complete works of Shakespeare because although I have it/them, I doubt I've read everything in it. Do not ask me how many of them I remember or enjoyed.... :)

I have done some of Shakespeare at school ... but couldn't tell you anything at all about them!
