Ranker's 160 Top Must-Read Books of All Time

"Need a good read? Take a look at this list of the best must-read books of all time, suitable for every one of all ages, creeds and color. These are the novels, autobiographies, and short books that you should consider when you ask yourself, "What book should I read next?" If you somehow made it through school without reading the classics - or you're still in school - be sure to check them out to expand your literary horizons. An eclectic mix that does not cater solely to the sensibilities of the literati, culturati, illuminati or even paparazzi. With some hidden gems in here, it's a great list to consider when looking for something to read next." - ranker.com
