Dr. Seuss had some great books. Think 'Oh the Places You'll Go' should be required reading for all.
I've read many on this list, some we're required reading in school, but I had read them years before the classes I took required them.
I just recently read 1984 for probably the 25th time. It still fascinates me. Sad many schools don't require it any more. The youngest person that told me she had read it, claimed since it was 1984 her instructor made it required for that year.
