Amber The last Book wouldn't Fit so i am adding it as a comment
Native Son By Richard Wright
Native Son


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I'll vote for it, Amber, so it'll be on there.


message 3: by Thom (new)

Thom Dunn Not 1984 ?


message 4: by Debbie (new)

Debbie I agree - 1984 should definitely be on the list!

Just reading the list makes me want to be young again and read these books for the first time.

With a few exceptions, I'd say most would make great background for going off as to college as a well-read young person. A few books - like Swann's Way - might best be on a list of books that await as treats for grownups.

I got this list from http://www.collegeboard.org, and tried to reproduce it as accurately as possible. While I agree that 1984 is a great read, it wasn't on their list so i didn't include it on this one.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads You want me to add that link to the list description?
