Virtual bookshelf

On radio 5 live on Sunday nights, Up All Night, they're compiling a virtual bookshelf & I think are up to number 35. Does anyone know if this list is actually posted & updated on the internet somewhere? I'm trying to keep up with it but sometimes I fall asleep as it's in the middle of the night! Have got 1-35 so far. Someone posts sometimes on FB but the whole list is not there. Thanks for any info.

Songs of a Sourdough - - -

- - - by Robert Service is number 36 on the virtual list. I've never heard of it or the author so had to go to Wikipedia. Sounds like quite a character - might have a trot to the library to borrow a copy.

R. Service.

"There are strange things done in the midnight sun by the men who moil for gold.
The arctic trails have their secret tales that would make your blood run cold." etc. etc.

And the rest of that verse - - -

"The Northern Lights, have seen queer sights,
But the queerest they ever did see
Was that night, on the marge of Lake Lebarge
I cremated Sam McGee."
Last verse of 'The Cremation of Sam McGee' from Songs of a Sourdough. Got it from the library and it's a fascinating read.
