I think it's a pretty good list. All the books are worth reading and are very interesting. The ranking however may differ from person to person.

Because the list is a bit outdated I wanted to ask you guys and gals what you would add to the list.
In my opinion there have been some great batman comics lately, like the paul Dini run on detective comic (Batman detective, Batman death and the city, Batman private casebook and Batman Heart of Hush) and the wonderful Batman whatever happened to the caped crusader by the talented Neil Gaiman.

I second that... and "R.I.P." as well. Neil Gaiman's run with "Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?" is what initially drew me into the comic world. I saw that at a book store I frequent and the cover by Andy Kubert really caught my eye so I bought it, read it and loved it. I'm fairly new to the comic world so this is really the story that did it for me to make the jump.

Oh man, those Kubert covers were awesome! I'm so glad DC got them...
