According to the TED ideas website, more than 40 TED speakers offered recommendations for this list. Some of the participants include Joshua PragerAdam Grant, and Magda Sayeg. The genres of these books range from classic fiction to modern day hit novels to nonfiction bestsellers.

The organizers designated a variety of different categories such as “when you’re by the beach,” “when you want to challenge yourself,” and “when you don’t have time for a 500-page book.” Some of the suggestions include Moby Dick by Herman Melville, Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. For more book ideas, check out reading lists from Bill Gates, O Magazine, and NPR.
