The ultimate literary bucket list: ‘1, Books to Read Before You Die’When Mustich began the project 14 years ago, he was initially overwhelmed by the gargantuan scale of it, despite his decades of experience as a hands-on book-seller. For two decades, from , he published a catalogue called The Common Reader — a monthly commentary on books old and new — which was clearly the precursor to 1, Books. But I knew I wanted to make something that was more than a list, or a static reference book. It had to be a tool for exploration, with some serendipity and surprises thrown in, and I also wanted it to be fun for readers. What if, Mustich thought, he had a bookstore that could hold only 1, volumes? Not just books for the ages, but books for the immediate moment, the kind to be picked up and devoured in just one night? There should be something there for everyone who might stroll in: Greek tragedy, a gripping thriller, a great picture book for kids.
