75 is the number of books that I have marked "to-read" on my Goodreads list. As if I need any more! I was looking on the Goodreads website and found a posting where someone asked "what 5 books you must read before you die?". So, what I want to know is what are YOUR top 5 books that you would recommend reading before you die? I know my number one is obviously the Bible...but other than that I don't know! Too many good choices! If I had to choose right now without giving it TOO much thought...I'd no particular order 

The Bible
Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl
Pride and Prejudice
Little Women
Harry Potter (#1)..if for no other reason than to see what all the hype is about! 

Tell me yours!

That's a hard one, Amber. As much as I love to read, there are five I can come up with at the moment. I guess it depends on when I'm going to die. Cause if I was going to die in the next few months, I'd probably only be concentrating on reading my Bible and spending time with family and friends, etc. If before I die means just before the end of my life sometime in the far future, then I'd probably say:

The Well-Trained Mind by Susan Wise Bauer and Jesse Wise (homeschooling stuff)
Emma by Jane Austen
another book by PG Wodehouse
Pilgrim's Progress
Keep in Step With the Spirit by JI Packer

just off the top of my head
