The Book Capsule Project

The Book Capsule is not about the best books or of one’s favourite books. It is rather about books that have had a significant influence on one’s understanding of, and, perception of humanity. The idea is to create a selection of books that one would perhaps consider giving to another so as to help them understand your way of looking at the world.

So, the point of the project is to solicit from various people the books that they would put into their capsule for the rest of us.

I have divided the list into fiction and non-fiction. I have  limited  the selection to 10 books, in no particular order. All the links will take you to the respective Wikipedia entry.
