100 Books to Read Before I Die

I used to go on Tumblr a lot, if you couldn't guess, and there are still many cool links that I have saved from there. I really liked finding book recommendations on Tumblr. I came across this book list that a Tumblr user posted of 100 books that you should read before you die and marked the ones that I have read. I have to agree with a lot of them, because generally the ones that I have read from here were really good books! Although I do have a couple of more favorites of my own...
