Amazon's 100 books to read in a lifetime.



Here.
I found it a disappointing list.

What do you think?

Is that because you've not read them or because you have?

I've read most and, for example, think that the Very Hungry Caterpillar is important for young children. Each book adds something to a person's experience and it is important that we have some common experiences. 100 books wouldn't even come close to what we should read over a lifetime however.

I was mainly disappointed in what was left out. The Bible is certainly the most influential book in human history. Where are significant works of history, religion, and economics? I would not have picked Dune over other great science fiction books.
