The Book Editors at Amazon.com have compiled a list of 100 books to read during your lifetime, a bucket list of books, so to speak.
I've personally read only 21 of them. I felt a little embarrassed about that, but then I realized something. It's just their opinion. And besides, any list that includes The Hunger Games, Lemony Snicket, and Gone Girl (all good books), but doesn't included War & Peace, Les Misérables, Don Quixote, or One Hundred Years of Solitude is a little suspect.
If you've got 5 minutes, it's a fun list to look through. How many have you read?
