Bookdepository: 95 Best Novels of All Time


They said it couldn’t be done, but we did it; we put together a list of the best books of all time. When we say best books ever, we’re talking top tier stuff; bucket list material, books that you’d save in a fire. But when we published this list, a strange thing happened. You (whisper it quietly) disagreed with us… and sent in your own selection of the greatest novels of all time. Well, we believe in listening to our customers… so here’s your list of the top books of all time, as selected by you.
