2 The Qur'an

This is a book that has been certified not by human but by God himself...Even if u are not a muslim read it and u will understand what I have written above..

Can only be read with a need to understand and a seeking answers to questions posed to an inquiring mind

The last guide to whole of mankind. It's for you.

The only book on Earth that will make you feel stronger than you knew you could feel.

3 Origin of Species

Why is this even a debate? There has never been, nor ever will be a more influential and important idea in the history of this world. This single-handedly challenged everything the bible and all other religious texts have taught us. The theory (excuse me: THE FACT) of evolution is the most profound scientific advancement that the world has ever seen and never has any piece of work changed the way we know things more than natural selection that originated from this book.

4 Uncle Tom's Cabin

Lit book

5 The Odyssey

I would have preferred the Aeneid, but anything to get the classics on the list.

6 The Book of Mormon

Wonderful book...

The Book of Mormon is another Testament of Jesus Christ! It's True!

Such a great book!

7 The Lord of the Rings
8 The Federalist Papers
9 The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

This Harper Lee masterpiece has been very influential in bringing about awareness of racism and inequality in the United States. I believe it was also influential in bringing about the Civil Rights movement.
