A few friends and I want to start a book club. We all love to read. We also love a good challenge. We have agreed that there are several gaps in our timeline of reading, that is, within the grand scheme of literature we have missed reading some important books. Thus our challenge among ourselves is to read some of those books over the course of the year, get together and discuss them over book themed tea.
I am having a problem, too many books to choose from and not enough time.

I want to include a good book about Greek and Roman mythology since this is fundamental to Western Civilization. Does anyone have a suggestion?
Something by Kipling, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Planet Narnia, and???? I am just not sure. Any suggestions?
