The Monk was a fantastic read!

If you're interested, there's a new version of Arukiyomi's 1001 books spreadsheet. Along with some cool new features, there are lists of both the revised 1001 books and those that were removed from the new 2008 list. That's right, the list has changed!

If you want a free copy of the spreadsheet, head over to Arukiyomi's blog.

Happy reading!
