The BBC List

Lately Facebook has made it a point to ensure I get to see every quiz that any of my friends take... Besides logging into my facebook account to pry on my friends quizzing abilities...I have also found an interesting post bya lot of my friends...where inadvertently I too get tagged...
It goes by "The BBC believes most people will have only read 6 of the 100 books here. How do your reading habits stack up?"

Ever the cat that I am...I tried to find if the source of the list mentioned there was really from BBC...I ended up finding 100's of blogs which were like mirror images of this post...some with a few minor alterations...but no BBC posting related to this...

I did find this interesting list though....referred to as The Big Read-Top 100(there are more...Top 20, Top 100 and Top 200)... Now assuming the list on FB was from BBC...I't would have been almost the same as this...(Can't imagine people at BBC making two different Book lists JUST FOR NOTHING...but then I've heard of stranger things that people and firms have done) ...well there are 57 in common...thats exactly 57 % ...(Mathematical Genius ;))

Anyways...I found the exercise interesting... besides marking the X'es I also decided to make a list of 50 movies ..of which I claim most people would watch only out for that list on facebook.... ;)
