Goodreads 100 Best Books List

I like perusing Best Books lists to see if there are new ideas or things I have missed or things written a long time ago that I should have read. Goodreads just came out with a new one and, while I don’t really use Goodreads, I thought I would take a look. These below are the ones I haven’t read that I am putting in mental reserve to pick up when I next need something great (…except the bible. I have read some of the Bible and don’t think I am going to be grabbing it anytime soon…). Anyone have any insights into the best ones from this list (ranked according to how they fell on the Goodreads order)?
