Bored? How about reading a nice book?

Reading is an excellent way to take advantage of spare time and to acquire valuable knowledge, but sadly, the development of newer and more sofisticated media technologies has somehow contributed to minimize the importance of this habit for the new generations; especially in countries where reading is not encouraged for children since their early ages, such as the ones in Latin America or Africa.
I would really suggest to get into the fascinating world of high-quality reading, and that's why I recommend to read some great works (my top 15 favorites), such as the following:

1. Satires - Horace
2. The Republic - Plato
3. The Little Prince - Antoine de Saint Exupéry
4. The Metamorphosis - Franz Kafka
5. Tevye the Milkman - Shalom Aleichem
6. The Prince - Niccolo Macchiavelli
7. One Hundred years of Solitude - Gabriel García Márquez
8. Dialogues - Plato
9. The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho
10. Animal Farm - George Orwell
11. Oedipus Rex - Sophocles
12. The Divine Commedy - Dante Alighieri
13. Iliad - Homer
14. One Thousand and One Nights - Anonymous
15. Euthydemus - Plato

So, this is the list. I hope you really enjoy any of these books, and remember: any book is best enjoyed when read in its original language! Enjoy.
