If you are a fellow bibliophile, a lot of those “Best Books of All Time” lists are filled with books many people (including me) wouldn’t consider the “best.”
No one would argue that Infinite Jest or War and Peace are important novels, but for many those reading experiences are less than pleasurable. For the true best of the best, turn to the people, which, in this case, I mean Reddit.
Recently, readers in the r/books subreddit submitted their answer(s) to “Which books do you consider a perfect 10/10?” Here are some of my favorite responses.
