Literary Bucket List

Does anyone else keep a literary bucket list? My TBR has gotten to the point where even if the only item on the list was to read all the books currently on my TBR I don't think I could do it. For awhile I was using listofbests but then people kept editing the lists and making annoying changes so I stopped. I do have some reading goals to accomplish over a lifetime though (in addition to travelling Europe, winning big at gambling, and writing the next great American novel which is on my regular bucket list).

Here is what I have so far:
  • Read all the Pulitzer Prize Winners for Fiction 7/84
  • Read as many classics as I can (yes, even Ulysses and War and Peace....)
  • Read all of Jean Plaidy's books 16/95
  • Read the 1,oo1 Books to Read Before you Die list
and if I have time left after all that:
  • Read the books I already own (at my current pace it would take me 8 years to do that)
Since that's roughly 3,000 books, something tells me I should have started on this list about 15 years ago. Still I'll give it my best shot. So, anyone else got an overly ambitious reading list they're trying to conquer?
