The Greatest Books of All Time?

There are many "greatest books" lists both in print and on the internet. They're always interesting to read, no only for their commonalities but also for their differences. They're also a great way to find inspiration for what classic to read next.

We present here a small selection of some of the more respected and well known lists. As epubBooks contains only Public Domain titles, and books in which the author has given their consent, the emphaisis for the collections presented here are with those that contain a large selection of titles that we can include from our own collection.
