I spend most of my time on Make Lists, Not War compiling best-of lists made by other people into meta-lists. I find this to be an enjoyable pastime – I always learn a lot making each meta-list, and the number of hits the website gets from folks around the world indicates that these lists are useful and/or interesting to other people.
But what about my personal best-of lists? Like so many listers out there, I love to make lists of my favorites. I keep running tallies of the books, films, and albums that I have rated 5/5 stars. These lists are quite long (295 books, 266 films, and 245 albums). Those lists are available on the website. But recently I decided to make smaller lists of favorite albums and favorite books – I decided to limit myself to just 150 books and albums (I didn’t try this with movies – too painful). So these aren’t all my favorites, just some of them.
Here are the links:
