Man's search for meaning

Frankl, Viktor E. (Viktor Emil), 1905-1997.


"If you read but one book this year, Dr. Frankl's book should be that one." Los Angeles Times, "An enduring work of survival literature." New York Times, "Perhaps the most significant thinking since Freud and Adler. Unconditional faith in an unconditional meaning is Dr. Frankl's message to the reader."

The wind in the willows

Grahame, Kenneth, 1859-1932.


"The wind in the willows" is a book for those "who keep the spirit of youth alive in them; of life, sunshine, running water, woodlands, dusty roads, winter firesides." So wrote Kenneth Grahame of his timeless tale of Rat, Mole, Badger, and Toad in their lyrical world of gurgling rivers and whispering reeds, a world that is both beautiful and benevolently ordered. But it is also a world threatened by dark forces --"the terror of the wild wood" with its "wicked little faces" and "glances of malice and hatred" --and defended by the mysterious Piper at the gates of dawn. In the end, Grahame triumphantly succeeds in conveying his most precious theme: the miracle of loyalty and friendship.

Tales of terror

Poe, Edgar Allan, 1809-1849.


American poet, critic, and short-story writer Edgar Allan Poe is universally recognized for his cultivation of the macabre in fiction. His stories are characterized by an original kind of supernatural horror, often using the awareness of death as a catalyzing force in its own right. His tales and poems brim with psychological depth and intense imagery, made vivid through his musical language and hypnotic rhythms, which are especially captivating when heard aloud.

The Story of King Arthur and his Knights

Pyle, Howard, 1853-1911.

Atlas shrugged

Rand, Ayn.


This is the story of a man who said that he would stop the motor of the world, and did. Is he a destroyer or a liberator?

You will learn the answers to these questions when you discover the reason behind the baffling events that play havoc with the lives of the amazing men and women in this remarkable book.

Treasure Island

Stevenson, Robert Louis, 1850-1894.


From the moment narrator Jim Hawkins meets the blind pirate Pew at the Admiral Benbow until the spirited battle for hidden treasure on a tropical island, the story spawns unforgettable scenes and characters that have thrilled readers young and old since its original publication in 1883.

The art of war the essential translation of the Classic Book of Life

Sunzi, 6th cent. B.C.


For more than two thousand years, 'The Art of War' has stood as a cornerstone of Chinese culture, a lucid epigrammatic text that reveals as much about human psychology, politics, and economics as it does about battlefield strategy. The influence of Sun-tzu's text has grown tremendously in the West in recent years, with military leaders, politicians, and corporate executives alike finding valuable insight in these ancient words.

Anna Karenina

Tolstoy, Leo, graf, 1828-1910.


Presents the working out of the parallel moral and religious dilemmas of Anna Karenina with her soldier-lover, Vronsky, and Konstantin Levin with his young, very loving wife, Kitty.

War and peace

Tolstoy, Leo, graf, 1828-1910.


Often called the greatest novel ever written, War and peace is at once an epic of the Napoleonic wars, a philosophical study, and a celebration of the Russian spirit. Tolstoy's literary genius is clearly seen in the multitude of fully realized and memorable characters.

A confederacy of dunces

Toole, John Kennedy, 1937-1969.


"A green hunting cap squeezed the top of the fleshy balloon of a head. The green earflaps, full of large ears and uncut hair and the fine bristles that grew in the ears themselves, stuck out on either side like turn signals indicating two directions at once." So enters one of the most memorable characters in recent American fiction.

The adventures of Tom Sawyer

Twain, Mark, 1835-1910.

Leaves of grass

Whitman, Walt, 1819-1892.


G.K. Chesterton argued that Walt Whitman is the greatest American. Leaves of Grass, first published in 1855 and augmented every few years until the poet's death in 1892, is his masterpiece. It was greeted by Ralph Waldo Emerson as "the wonderful gift ... the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet contributed."
