The betterment list

Inspired by Andy Miller´s book A year of reading dangerously, this is the place to list the books you know you should have read or the ones you have pretended to already have read. Absolutely honesty is required! Never mind if the book is one of the 1001 or whatever - just list it!
The 50 books in Andy Miller´s list are in it.
Please! Do not list more than 20 books. That will make you really consider which ones to choose...
And please - check before you add - no duplicates, thank you
