Obtained from Mr. Ellis who pointed to this page.  I have no idea on what basis the average is six, so I`d ignore that were I you.   Possibly that would only be a sign that a person was not yet 30 or something.  And, hmm, I guess ignore some of the repitition (Chronicles of Narnia contains The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe).  I suppose one could also imagine that the blank line in the middle is significant in some way...

Three books on this list are not crossed out because I started but did not finish them:  The Bible, A Tale of Two Cities, and Ulysses.

Cross out what you’ve already read. Six is the average.
