Favourite books

A ReadingSocial (Virtual Bookshelf) reader on Facebook wrote to me: "Hey, I noticed you've read a lot of boooooks. Can you please help me with your top five books? I've begun a list of books I want to read and I want to diversify what I read. Can you please include any spritual books? "
 
It took a while for me to pick five books and identifying my top five books would take months so I recommended:
  • Peter Ackroyd. Hawksmoor
  • William Blake. Songs of Innocence and Experience
  • Kahil Gibran. The Prophet
  • George Grossmith. Diary of a Nobody
  • Alan Watts. Tao, the watercourse way
What would you have suggested?

When I asked the original querent for his five favourites he listed:

Ishmael - Daniel Quinn
The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho
Siddhartha - Herman Hesse
The Peaceful Warrior - Dan Millman
The Ascent of Man - J. Bronowski

which is an interesting list. I have already read Siddhartha and The Ascent of Man and the rest are on my "want to read" list.

The Count of Monte Christo was one of the books that I considered including in my original list. I have ordered a copy of The Giver.
