    Do you really want useful books - books which give you facts? Or just good books to read?

    What kind of story do you like?

    Useful books??? All books are useful in a way or another. It depends on what you are interested in: Realism, Classicism, Modernism; Are you interested in English or American novels? The most important English & American literary periods and writers are: The Literary Explorer - Literary Periods of British and American Literature, Printable Version
    If you tell us what exactly you are interested in, I tell you exactly what worth reading.

    Thomas Hardy "Tess of the D'urbervilles"

    Nathaniel Hathorne "The Scarlet Letter"

    Harper Lee " To Kill a Mockingbird"

    These are both famous and useful books. I can tell you that you will not regret if you read them.

    best wishes,

    If you want plays then you should read "Pygmalion" by G B Shaw or "Waiting for Godot" by Samuel Beckett

    Re: novels;poems;plays

    For novels, try Graham Greene, J.L. Carr, Margery Allingham, Agatha Christie, Josephine Tey, Margaret Mitchell ("Gone with the Wind") - that should give you lots of reading matter
