100 Great Novels

In yet another probably futile effort at "self-improvement," I want to read 100 “great” novels; that is, I am limiting this list to fiction novels, not “great books” in general.

I want the books to represent a range of centuries and decades, rather than limiting my selection to the 20th century or “modern” novels.

I am currently perusing a variety of lists of “best,” “greatest,” and “most influential” books and will compile my own list from a variety of sources, based largely on the titles most often cited.

I am, of course, open to suggestions from my literate circle of internet friends.
