J. Peder Zane asked 125 authors to rank the top ten books of all time and he presents their lists in his book, The Top Ten: Writers Pick Their Favorite Books. Based on the 125 lists, Zane came up with the definitive top ten books of all time. They are:

1. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
2. Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
3. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
4. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
5. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
6. Hamlet by William Shakespeare
7. The Great Gatsby F. Scott Fitzgerald
8. In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust
9. The Stories of Anton Chekhov by Anton Chekhov
10. Middlemarch by George Eliot

Personally, I'm surprised Moby Dick did not make the list. On the book's website:, Zane allows you to submit your own top ten list. I'm interested in what others think about this list. What should be on or off the list?
