Goodreads' 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime
Prepare yourself for some frightening news: you have, according to LitHub , only a finite amount of time left in your life to read. The average American, for instance, reads 12 books a year. Are you suddenly feeling the tightening coil of mortality? Here are books to read before you die. Set in , Winston Smith must overcome a frightening enemy: an omniscient government with an agenda.
So many books, so little time. With this in mind, the Amazon Books editors set out to compile a list of Books to Read in a Lifetime. We had a few goals when we started out: We wanted the list to cover all stages of a life which is why you'll find children's books in here , and we didn't want the list to feel like homework. Of course, no such list can be comprehensive — our lives, we hope, are long and varied — but we talked and argued and sifted and argued some more and came up with a list, our list, of favorites. What do you think?
This is an extensive list of good books across several categories and these books were selected by Goodreads readers and Amazon editors. I have had a lifelong love affair with books- especially the classics- and I think this is an excellent list. There is definitely something for everyone and looking through this list is like seeing old friends for me. There are some current bestsellers included as well like several of the Harry Potter books and Gone Girl which I loved. So you might take a look at this list and see if you want to add some things to your bookshelf. You can click the links to be taken to the main page where all books are listed. There are 4 pages in total.
