Best Books Ever Written

Can you name the best book ever written?
Who can honestly answer that question?
Has anyone read every book ever written?
And who’s to say what the best is?

Newsweek gave it a shot with their Meta-List. They combined the numbers from ten top book lists to come up with the top 100 books ever written . There are many classics, plenty of Shakespeare, even the Holy Bible; but Charles Dickens
is notably absent as well as Ayn Rand. Another interesting observation is the fact that the first non-fiction title arrives on the list at #26. Ah well, what can you expect from a list that doesn't even link to IndieBound as an ordering option?

How about you?
What would you add, remove, or replace?
