Reader's Digest's 100 Best Books of All Time
To land in the top 100, a book needed to truly stand out in the stacks. We considered best sellers, award winners, and books that are highly rated by readers and critics alike. Many have been made into blockbuster movies. Going on, many are taught in schools today. Many have snagged spots on other "best of" lists published by the likes of the New York Times, The Guardian, NPR, PBS, Time magazine, and more. And most have had profound impacts on literature, culture, or the world in general. Our list includes everything from classics, to new favorites, to biographies and children's books. Ready?
