As far as fiction goes:

Brave New World
by Aldous Huxley.
Michael Kohlhaas
by Heinrich von Kleist.
The Castle by Franz Kafka.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams.
Angst (="Fear") by Stefan Zweig (if that little novella counts as a book)

albstein,
It doesn't have to be fiction.  It can be anything. I'll let you rethink your list, if you like, to include any you may have left out.

I will add your suggs, Dan, but maybe you could post a link to an IMDb image of that could be used?  (I'm having an image of everyone's #1 book, so a picture of a math problem?)  :)  Thank you!
