Being well read

The other day, I was browsing through some Zelda websites around the time Hyrule Historia was released. On an article, someone said this:
I'm paraphrasing, but it was something along these lines. I cringed when I read this. You're telling me, that the best book you have EVER read is basically a giant picture book published in 2012? You must have a sad state of affairs.Originally Posted by Some random person
I then realized that this is a sad reflection of society as a whole. All I had to do was look at my best IRL friends. They don't read. AT ALL! This shows how lazy people have become. No one wants to think anymore. Books involve thinking. Thinking about the deeper meaning of the work. Even visualizing the characters and scenery.
But apparently that's too much work. Without books, there would be no video games. A video game is basically a book, just with visuals and sound. I was a voracious reader as a child, but as I got older, I read less because I simply don't have the time. I remember one time, I read the entire Series of Unfortunate events in one week. The more one read's, the better they become at expressing themselves and it also makes one's imagination more exciting.
So anyways, I have taken the liberty of making a list of books that should be read before one dies. (IMO)
I only put classics because they are universally acclaimed and must reads. Read the abridged version if you must. Please read more society. At least slow the decline.
