Penguin Books UK has compiled a list of 100 books that have changed the world, throughout history. According to Penguin, these works of literature have;
…transformed the way we see ourselves – and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives – and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization, and helped make us who we are.
The list is interesting and compels you to check off those you have read, and to tackle those you may not. A brilliant way to celebrate thought-provoking literature – and to get consumers to buy more books from Penguin.
