Date: July, 1998

Source: The Modern Library

Base: Fifteen plus editors and members of the board of The Modern Library

Notes: Members compiled a list of the top 100 novels and top 100 non-fiction books. Two readers lists were also published later in the year attracting over 400,000 votes (mostly by internet). In the readers list, the top 10 novels included 4 books by Ayn Rand (very cool) and 3 by L Ron Hubbard (bizarre!). To see the top 100 novels lists click HERE.
