Top 100 Literary Books Often Required School Reading

These are the most popular literary books among teachers and are often required reading, in Jr. high, high school, and college. Compiled this list from different sources, by asking people, and lots were assigned to me in school, they are in no particular order.
Number 98 is suppose to say Treasure Island not The Jungle Book, don't know how that happened, but it won't let me change it now.
