Hey, I've always had an interest in reading and writing. So far, most of my reading has been sci-fi and fantasy fiction, but now that my first year of college is behind me and my mind has been opened to new books (Heart of Darkness to name one), I'm interested in delving further into fiction and literature. I was wondering if anyone could compile, or throw out a suggestion or two, of books that every "accomplished" reader should have under his or her belt. Try not to get too niche with the title - I'd like to get the framework down first before moving onto some of the lesser-known ones. But you can still suggest whatever you want! Tell me why you think it should be read, too, and what makes it special to you personally. Thanks for the help to anyone who replies!
