TIME: All-TIME 100 Novels

January 24 is National READATHON Day, sponsored by the National Book Foundation. It’s on Saturday and runs from noon until 4:00 p.m. in your respective time zone. That’s not too much of a time commitment, so join your fellow readers to take some time to read. In case you don’t have a book handy, or don’t know what to read, TIME magazine has compiled a list of the 100 best English-language novels. The list was compiled by two book critics, who explained how they picked the novels included on the roster. There’s plenty of complaining about what was not included, but it’s a great place to start.
