Hi there,

As part of my summer bucket list on here I am going to get together a list of 50 "must read" books and I was wondering what absolute "must reads" or classics I should have on there. I've already bought Pride and Prejudice and To Kill a Mockingbird but I'm looking for those sort of books which are inspirational or classics to read. Any suggestions?

If you want to add another to the list; Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut is probably the most inspirational book I've ever read.

I have that bookmark and I would say you must read Memoirs of a Geisha! Also, I loved the book American Gods by Neil Gaiman and Bless Me, Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya...
