Must Read Books of All Time

Check out these must read books of all time, brimming over with mind stimulating stories, with books that will keep you coming back for more...
Naomi Sarah
Books to me are a getaway to someplace far from the bleak and ordinary, filled with imagination, fantasy, intriguing tales, men with ripped revealing abs and damsels in distress. My favorite genres have always circled around horror and mystery; there's always something brewing and it keeps you hooked from cover to cover.
Instead of always picking up that magazine and flipping through fashion and gadget info, read a book instead and subject your mind to get involved, not to mention help awaken an imagination that's waiting to come to the fore. Here you'll find a list on the must read books of all time worth curling up to with a cup of Joe, as well as books that will have kids reading well past midnight, under the sheets, the pages illuminated by torchlight.
Back in school I was so obsessed with reading (not like it has simmered down), I'd prop it up against my textbook and pretend like I was studying. Being an avid reader, I encourage people to read, and let their minds saturate all that text that will help strengthen their writing skills and vocabulary.
Must Read Books for Women
Women, more than men, I think, have a love for reading that is more inborn than bred. I wish more men would read, so that they'd be good conversationalists when it came to discussing great reading. Women can check out these books, as well as men, since they aren't all that chick oriented.
