Ultimate Book List

I combined 7 very popular lists into one: BBC's Top 100 Books You Need to Read Before You Die, Amazon's 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime, 100 Books Everyone Should Read (Ranked by the Users of Goodreads!), Goodreads' 200 Best Books of the 20th Century, 50 Books to Read Before You Die, 105 Books of Pop Cultural Importance, and Books to Help Us Become More Well Rounded.
To tighten this list further I eliminated any that only appeared on one list that less than 10% of people read.
