I marathon-watched LOST during the winter of 2013. This led to my looking for a list of the books referenced on the series. I complied a list of my own from many online sources, and found that reading the LOST booklist would contribute to my old books reading project. I’ve blogged about LOST and books in various places:
Here is my LOST booklist. Bold means published before 1970, thus also belong to the old books project. Crossed out means I read it since beginning this project. If I’ve blogged about the book it is linked on the year of publication.
