1,000 Books To Read Before You Die

with James Mustich
North Down Museum

1,000 Books to Read Before You Die: A Life-Changing List puts a thousand great books at readers’ fingertips. Fourteen years in the making this compelling compendium of a thousand noteworthy books to get lost in is essential reading for every book lover.

The book is as compulsively readable, entertaining, surprising, and enlightening as the thousand books it recommends, and it celebrates something every reader loves — the joy of discovery.

James Mustich began his career in bookselling at an independent bookstore in Briarcliff Manor, New York, in the early 1980s. In 1986, he co-founded the acclaimed book catalog, A Common Reader, and was its guiding force for two decades. He has subsequently worked as an editorial and product development executive in the publishing industry.

Enjoy James Mustich in conversation as he discusses the Irish titles that made his list and find out if he really read all of them!
