Leslie brings up an excellent point in her comment--why are we beginning at #1? I believe we should clarify.I don't think the list is an actual ranking, just a top 100 list. Jana, was this your impression as well? Being that it was just a top 100 list, we just decided to start at the beginning and move onward from there.
Plus we have a Jon Stewart book to look forward to at the end. Trust me, it is much lighter far than The Road, which I have finally started. Even better, I have the large print edition (see: JCPL Sucks A$$) and can read it from any location in the house. Turning pages has proven difficult, though.
