Before and after the Millennium, various publications chose 'Best of' lists of all kinds. In October 2005, TIME Magazine published its
'All-TIME 100 Novels' listing, which is expanded on here. A few of the novels that were coded on Spirit of America's
'100 Books To Read In A Lifetime' Pages – from among the 160 Best Books (fiction & non-fiction) listed as such by Amazon
in 2013 – are included here to point out what TIME Magazine omitted.
