  1. I'm not at all surprised to see most of these on here. Looks like I have quite a few books to get to.

  2. I was surprised to see The Alchemist at the top of the list! I still haven't read that one. And I haven't even heard of Berlin Boxing Club. It's always fun to see what books are popular at different schools!
