Top 10 Books to Read Before You Die
I saw this list on AOL and just had to share it with you. Seems they got their top 10 from an AOL poll. I didn't vote. Is your top book here?
10 - The Holy Bible (I'm so glad it made at least #10 since it is the world's all time bestseller - sigh)
9 - The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger
8 - Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand
7 - Angels and Demons by Dan Brown
6 - To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (I love both the book and movie)
5 - The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown (bought the book but never read it)
4 - The Stand by Stephen King
3 - Harry Potter series (I did read the first 3 or 4)
2 - Lord of the Rings series (so far I've only done the movies)
1 - Gone with the Wind by Marget Mitchell (don't know why, but I've not read the book. Seen the movie numerous times, though. And - notice - this is the book with the most "romance" focus, no matter how twisted or bittersweet.)
Do you have a top 10 list of favorites or those you still want to read?
My list would likely include Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen and Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers near the top.
