I strongly second this recommendation - homework for trial preparation several years ago but sage wisdom applicable to life in general. Would also add Sun Tzu - The Art of War...

We had a one armed marine/ sixth grade science teacher that read Where the Red Fern Grows to his class every year. A few pages a day after we finished up our science work. I could not wait to get to his class every day. He would finish it up at the end of the school year and cry like a baby, as would every kid in the class, all through the last chapter. He taught there for 30 years and was one of the finest men I have ever known. Thank you for mentioning that Bob, I will be reading that again very soon.

This is a very good list, and I have actually read all of them. One change though - replace Slaughterhouse Five with Citizen Soldier. As a bonus I will toss out one book that no one should read, even though it shows up near or at the top of lists of greatest novels ever written - James Joyce's Ulysses, only matched for awfulness by his other "great" work, Finnegans Wake. I still hate my English Lit teacher for making me read those pieces of garbage.

I think Homer's The Illiad and The Odyssey were basically the same story told much better.
