Answer by Ayushi Mona:

It's impossible to have a common list of Ten Books To Read before you die for everyone.

So, I am going to cheat and state my top ten favorite books:

1. Collected Plays and Sonnets of William Shakespeare
2. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
3. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
4. The Mahabharata
5. Pride & Prejudice by  Jane Austen
6. The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald
7. Of Human Bondage by Somerset Maugham
8. Ulysses by James Joyce
9. The Stand by Stephen King
10. Animal Farm by  George Orwell

If you can get through  these ten books in a lifetime and appreciate each of them for what it is, you'd have an understanding of every kind of human emotion there is. Also, these books span countries and genres. So, pretty comprehensive coverage.
