Top 10 Most Iconic Books of All Time

ShiviDIVI

The Top Ten

1 Diary of a Wimpy Kid - Jeff Kinney
2 The Hobbit - J. R. R. Tolkien

OP seems to be confused and does not realize that LOTR was always intended to be a single volume. Marketing and price concerns caused it to be split into three volumes.

Although any fan will tell you LOTR is better, this book is way more iconic than the deathly hallows so I am voting for it.

3 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - J.K. Rowling
4 My Side of the Mountain

So simple, yet so good - blackflower

5 The Outsiders - S.E. Hinton

One of my favorite books I read in English class - blackflower

So good.
I recommended it.
