Ben Great idea! I added three books that are mentioned in Billy Joel's stream of consciousness history lesson "We Didn't Start the Fire."

Catcher in the Rye
Stranger in a Strange Land
Peyton Place

TheBirdNerd Great list! I will add 'A Clockwork Orange' to this list, as Lana Del Rey had a concept album loosley based off of it (although the name is not mentioned). The album was suitably called 'Ultraviolence'. I also added 'Lolita', as the same singer also has a song based on this book :) .
