Fill in the Gaps 100 Project and "Middlemay" Book Club

The Fill in the Gaps 100 Books Project is a 5-year reading project that challenges you to name 100 books you feel you should and must read and then complete at least 75 of them in 5 years.

Also, Moonrat from Editorial Ass is spearheading Middlemay, a book club reading of Middlemarch in May (cute name, right!). I don't think you have to be a member of the blog to join in, as you can just leave comments, but I recommend joining because it's a great project.
