The 100 books with the most votes so far have been compiled into a long-list, which you can read here.
An editorial committee will select a final list of 25 titles for World Book Night and this will be announced on Wednesday 12th October at the Frankfurt Book Fair.
Julia Kingsford, CEO, World Book Night says about the longlist;
'It's wonderful to see the passionate choices of so many people and, above all, the diversity of those choices. We had always expected there to be a wide range of books nominated but to have so many titles chosen is a great reminder of the power and passion of individual readers. And though many 'old favourites' from previous top 100s are present it's a really fresh, dynamic and fascinating snapshot of the books people love with some genuine surprises.'
I'm chuffed to see one of my favourite books in second place, the earliest romantic comedy, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
