What book(s) should you read every 10 years as old age will provide a richer understanding and appreciation?

We’ve been getting a lot of Tweets* asking if I finally finished “Welcome to the Monkey House.”

I did.

welcomemonkeyhouseYou may recall, I alluded to this a few weeks back, within the context of re-reading those old books-that-rocked-your-world-in-high-school.  It’s fun to reexamine them through the lens of old age, world-weariness, cynicism, recent gluten-intolerance, etc.

Which begets the question: What book(s) should you read every 10 years as old age will provide a richer understanding and appreciation?  Oh, and why?

We even made a poll.  So vote away!  You get three choices.

And if your choice isn’t included, tell us via the nifty “Comments” box.

As I said, vote away!

* An old blogging trick to seemingly organically introduce a topic when, in fact, readers were, at best, wildly ambivalent about the fact I was reading “Welcome to the Monkey House.”
