What are yall's 10 favorite books ? Not necessarily author. 1. Gulliver's Travels by Johnathan Swift. Best thing I ever read. Now that I'm older I can appreciate the multiple perspectives this book is written from. 2. The Illiad by Homer. A dreamteam of ancient Greek characters 3. This Side Of Paradise by F. Scott Fitzgerald So underrated 4. One Man In The Universe by Aristotle He and Plato are the closest we will ever get to Socrates since he had no written works of his own. 5. Five Great Dialouges by Plato See Aristotle. I'm suprised he wasn't put to death like his mentor , Socrates. 6. The Pearl by John Steinbeck One of the most graphic books I read as a child 7. Meditations by Marcus Aureilis 8. The Old Man And The Sea by Hemmingway Shit was kinda bittersweet to me. But that's just me. 9. The Odyssey by Homer I would do anything to have an adventure like this 10. On Politics And Education by John Locke He had some ideas that could be viewed as pretty radical for his time.
