The Sword of Shannara Trilogy
2.  The Sword of Shannara Trilogy by Terry Brooks
The list author says:

Prophet of Israel
3.  Prophet of Israel by Timothy S. Wilkinson

The Poisonwood Bible: A Novel
4.  The Poisonwood Bible: A Novel by Barbara Kingsolver

The Bourne Identity: Jason Bourne Book #1
5.  The Bourne Identity: Jason Bourne Book #1 by Robert Ludlum

Snow Falling on Cedars: A Novel
6.  Snow Falling on Cedars: A Novel by David Guterson

$12.16   Used & New from: $0.01
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (908 customer reviews)

Ivanhoe (Penguin Classics)
7.  Ivanhoe (Penguin Classics) by Sir Walter Scott
The list author says:
  "It took me three tries to make it through this book the first time. Since then I have read it half a dozen more. Unquestionably (in my opinion) the greatest novel of its day."
$9.58   Used & New from: $1.78
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (123 customer reviews)
