H's Less Predictable List of Fifty Books to Read Before You Die

Alright, there are some obvious ones on here, but hopefully quite a few you don't see as often on lists like this. I wanted to get a lot of variety of genres and styles in there - how can it be an ultimate list if it's only classics, or only litfic? So see what you think - and find out how many you've read!
