War and Peace? You'll be lucky to get through just that one book in a year, let alone the whole list! Tis a good list though.
I can lend you Day of the Triffids if you like.

Yeah, I'll save that one till last. I'm currently a little way into the Communist Manifesto but its hardly convinced me to overthrow the Bourgeois. Fortunately it's quite short - if a little repetitive!
