Best Books

The National Association of Librarians have listed their favorite 100, the top ten being;

1. Pride and Prejudice

2. To Kill A Mockingbird

3. Jane Eyre

4. Gone With The Wind

5. Lord of The Rings

6. The Catcher In The Rye

7. Little Women

8. A Prayer For Owen Meany

9. The Stand

10.The Great Gatsby

Undoubtedly a majority of confirmed bibliophiles would avidly disagree with several of the choices. Not being able to eliminate any I would prefer moving number 2 to 1, 8 to 2 and 6 to 3, JMO

11. Twilight Saga


I've read To Kill A Mockingbird and its really good

I have read 1, 4, 5 and 7 and enjoyed them all. Know of the others, except Owen Meany amd The Stand.

One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich.

If we are talking books that make a difference, perhaps we should include Asimov's 'Robot' series as many people think the 'Three Laws of Robotics' are as definitive as the Ten Commandments.

In my personal opinion, for this is essentially an opinion question, Pride and Prejudice is undeserving of the nomination.

100 Years of Solitude (Gabriel Garcia Marquez) Vanity Fair (William Makepeace Thackeray) Swann's Way (Marcel Proust)

The Twilight Saga is a blood saga.
