Eek, Gravity's Rainbow is a bit of hard work. I would start from the bottom up on that list!

For some light, beach type reading Dostoyevski's Crime and Punishment is a refreshing read.

James Michener's, Chesapeake, is my all time favorite. It's about this reigon and you learn so much history along with a great story line. Goes from 1583 through Watergate.
I have it on audio disc too. 47 discs.

Another of his, which are all great, is Centennial. Starts with a female dinosuar swallowing a rock for her digestion and goes through the entire move of settlers from the East Coast to the west. Puts some perspective on how we live now. They all do.

I warn you, sometimes the first couple chapters are hard to get into, but it really pays off.
He was a master historian, researcher and writer.

The LA Times wrote 'While he fascinates and engrosses, Michener also educates.' He died in 1997 at 90 years old.

You know, I like Grisham. Easy read and entertaining. My husband takes it all too far to heart. He got up one morning and told me "And they killed that boy in the wheelchair, and that's a damn shame!" I had to remind him,'it's fiction.':-)

You know, they've just released the original, uncensored manuscript version of Dorian Grey a year or so ago.

Of Mice and Men -amazing book

Lord of the Flies - aka what Columbus will look like if Colman stays mayor much longer

Unbroken - as someone else mentioned amazing book

Fight Club - still one of my favorite books and I think is a warning for what happens in a society that keeps demasculinating men

Thanks for making me cry. We had to read that book in HS, designated chapters every day for discussion the next class. Me, being me, followed directions. We were towards the end, I'm on a bus to go to an away game, a guy (how he graduated, I'll never know), knocks on the bus window, I open it and he tells me the ending. UGH!!!! I still believe that's the only page he read.

Concur, excellent book.

Other fave, Five people you meet in heaven.
