Which books should all men read?

That was the question that two guys asked me after I published my article Which books should all women read?

The Dangerous Book for Boys

I'm not able to make a list of books that men should read, but here are the first items from the list of books that all men should have read as boys, from The Dangerous Book for Boys:

* Books by Roald Dahl
* Winnie-the-Pooh books by A.A. Milne
* The Willard Price series
* Famous Five series and Secret Seven series by Enid Blyton
* Fungus the Bogeyman by Raymond Briggs

Do you have others to recommend?

I think every guy should read "Pride and Prejudice"! My dad, brothers and husband have all laughed at the parts they've seen of the A&E miniseries, and learned about women too.

Also, I think every man should read at least one good book on our nation's Founders- the men who pledged their "lives, fortunes and sacred honor" to the cause of liberty. A historical perspective is valuable in everyday life.

And "The Lord of the Rings" is a must-read.

I think Jules Verne's books are great... timeless even in this age of Internet and instant-everything!
