Our experience is the books we read. Our knowledge is the books we read. Our life with you is formed, like a puzzle, from the facts we read. Our memory is a synthesis of what we have read. We are what we read.
Here, perhaps, how one can characterize the importance of literature in our lives. Today it all comes down to the fact that you can read "War and Peace" in just 20 minutes. Such an opportunity arises due to the fact that current generations are simply too lazy to pick up this massive novel and even flip through it. Therefore, brief summaries are written, in which there is often no morality, but only a dry presentation of the facts. All that literary heritage that has been accumulated for the current generation is gradually becoming unnecessary. And perhaps even soon we will come to what Ray Bradberry wrote about in one of his famous novels.
Main from lists
But be that as it may, books still feed people who want to achieve something more than they are born with. And almost every such person has his owna personal list of books everyone should read. For those who are seriously interested in reading books and love them as a source of new knowledge, many world famous magazines make their lists of "100 books that everyone should read".
These lists mainly include classical works such as "Don Quixote", "Faust", "Romeo and Juliet" and many others. Of the works written in the 20th century, the lists often include the beautiful and very complex novel by James Joyce "Ulysses", several works by Ernest Hemingway, including "For Whom the Bell Tolls", a whole series of novels by John Updike. If you take the list compiled by Time magazine, then, in addition to the above, you can find several novels by John Fowles, including The Magus and The Collector. The current list of "100 Books Everyone Should Read That Can Change a Person" includes short stories such as Naomi Wolfe's The Beauty Myth and Fitzgerald's The Incredible Story of Benjamin Button.
Such lists of 100 books that every self-appreciating person should read appear in magazines every day. Most of the above books are repeated in them, occupying different places.
And although each such list is largely written based onsubjective opinions, yet each of the books that occupy any line in them is important, because it tells about something truly important and great. If you pick up works such as Life of Pi, Cloud Atlas, or The Clock and read them from beginning to end, you may be able to understand some truths that even today many people fail to understand. These truths are hidden in every literary heritage, in every little pamphlet, in every novel, story or poem, they just need to be subtracted. The list of 100 books everyone should read can be made by anyone, at any age. But for this you need to read 1000 books. Truth and knowledge have always been drawn from books, and no doubt it will continue to be so.
