The Top 20 Must Read Books of All Time

"Once upon a time, reading was pretty much the only entertainment option. But in the modern day, with almost endless distractions, you've got to be picky about your reading list. While everyone agrees there are must-read books, no one can agree on exactly which books make the top of the list, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try. While we believe all of these books are "must-reads," a comprehensive list would be impossibly huge, so some great books on your list might not be here. If you're trying to read some of the best books of all time, start with this list of must-read books and crack open a masterpiece." - bookbub
