For a non-fiction book you must read, an oldie but goodie is "How to Lie With Statistics" by Darrell Huff. Nowadays with so many groups throwing around stats, it's a good idea to learn the tricks that some people use to deceive you with "numbers".

For my English class we're reading The Great Gatsby; I've read only the first ten pages, and I'm already hooked. I'm pretty fond of the Modernist age now; I've read Prufrock and poems by Frost. The fragmentation and dislliusionment of the Modernists appeals to me for some odd and extraordinary reason.

Beside American lit., the Bible is one book everyone should read. Whether if you do or don't believe in God, you should live like you are Christ: someone who placed himself as a servant even though being God at the same time (Mark 10:45).

Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain. Wonderful characters and story, a bit long, but worth it.

I don't think there are any must-read books. Everyone's different. People react differently to things. I hate The Catcher in the Rye and find Sanshiro an undeniably superior coming-of-age novel, but there are those that disagree.
