Welcome to the '1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die' Library!

The idea of the 1001-library is to collect all "1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die" to this virtual Library for everyone to enjoy.

** Please double check that requesters are 1001-Library members by seeing if they are on our list of friends.

The library is intended to be multilingual and collects books in all languages. We also welcome duplicates!

You can find the 1001 list here and if you want to keep track of your "1001 reads", you can download a pretty neat Excel spreadsheet by clicking here.

Please note that a 2nd edition of the 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die list was issued in 2008. There is also a 2010 version, which is downloadable through the above excel link. We have decided to stick to the original list while also accepting books from the new lists.

We made labels for books that belong to the 1001 library, using the Avery J8163 labels format (14 labels per sheet). You can download the labels either as a
Word document or as a PDF file.

Both links are not working anymore. The library has a Word-document available that you can request by sending a PM. When you include an e-mail address you can be reached on, the library can send it to you.

And here you can search which books the 1001-library has or doesn't have :)." method="GET">    Title:    


How it works?

If you have a 1001 book and would like to give it to this library- kindly PM the library and include you book's BCID in the message. The book will be then journaled to this library and thus made available for everyone. Be also prepared to send the book along to anywhere in the world to the next crosser, who wishes to read the book.

In order to take out a book from the library, you first need to 'donate' a book to the library. Then if you see a book that you are interested in - kindly PM the person, who journaled the book before the Library. Please, include you address in the message. If you don't get a reply nor the book, kindly inform the Library.

If someone requests a book from you and you want to make sure he or she is a member, check the library's list of friends. All donors are on the list.

After you are finished reading the book, PM the library and include the BCID in your message. The book will then be journaled back to the library's AVL-pile. And -of course- be prepared to send the book along, when requested by the next interested crosser.

There are a few librarians and we take turns.

To reach a specific librarian:"NICNIC2 (Speaks English and some Swedish )" align="absmiddle"> Ipsu (speaks English, Finnish & Swedish)" align="absmiddle"> buocl (speaks English)
soffitta1 (speaks English, Spanish, Portuguese, German)
Boekentrol (speaks Dutch, Frisian, English, German and Russian)
The librarians wish to thank Girandola for her help with the German and Italian translations of the library's JEs and Vasha for taking care of the wishlist!
