We had some good discussion going on a few years back when that top 100 was first being voted on. I'd probably vote differently if they did it again these days.

The chart's very well done, a clever way to introduce people without intimidating them with a "here is 100 books you should read!"

Interesting. Just heading over to the other thread to see how many I have read when I find the results.

Am I just missing it? I can't find the Gap on the sci-fi side...

I cannot decipher much of the text even on the large image or make head or tail out of the covers. We're living on the era of speedy intrawebz and 30-inch screens; hi-res images, please. Wink

Sheesh, Frosy... just save the image locally and zoom with any image package. I strongly doubt that your artistic abilities start and end with crayons and am equally sure that even in ever-benighted Finland a jpeg is an understood thing.

I worked out the only way to get that image host to show the picture original size is to right click and "view image", rather than trying to get their website to show it.

That's the size I meant. Sorry, can't read a fair amount of it from the regular working distance. Yes I can both glue my nose to the screen or dump pics into the 'shop, zoom in, and get terrible blurry pixelation. Razz Helps, but uncomfortable, especially regarding the lovechild of a flowchart and bedsheet such as that.
Why do you think this is my 100% resolution while drawing? Razz

I can't either. Evil or Very Mad
