I’ve graduated college and after that great experience I realized I really hadn’t read some of the best works. After doing some research I came across the Easton Press and their 100 Greatest Books Ever Written. This was exactly what I was looking for, however there were books on the list that didn’t interest me, and certain genres were in my opinion underrepresented. I therefore decided to make my own list of Greatest Books, and like the Easton Press list my list goes over 100 books. My list may not be everybody’s top list of classic literature and other writings, but it’s what I came up with. Also, I do not have some really good books that have been coming out more recently and I may or may not post about some of those that I’ve read that I think are really noteworthy. But here is my list of books that I will be going through, they are in alphabetical order and I will be reading them at random:2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemmingway A Puritan in Babylon by William Alen White A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens Adventures of Sherlock Holmes vol. 1 by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll All the King’s Men by Robert Penn Warren All Quiet on the Western Front by Eric Maria Remarque Animal Farm by George Orwell Argonautica: Jason and the Golden Fleece by Apollonius Rhodes Around the Moon by Jules Verne Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne Asop’s Fables by Asop At the Earth’s Core & The Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs Banker to the Poor by Muhammad Yunus Beowulf by Unknown Blackhawk Down by Mark Bowden Blind Man’s Bluff by Drew Sontag Brave New World by Aldous Huxley Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote Catch-22 by Joseph Heller Conan the Barbarian by Robert E.

There’s something about owning books that are works of art as well and the Easton Press’ leather-bound books are simply amazing. So hope you enjoy the journey along with me and hopefully are inspired to take on some of these amazing works as well.
