The conservative publication Human Events asked a panel to recommend the ten books everyone should read in college. A wise panel puts the Bible at number one:
The Bible, the central work of Western Civilization, defines the relationship between God and man, and forms the foundation of faith in the Judeo-Christian tradition. Yet, today it is virtually banned in America’s public primary and secondary schools—meaning many American students may not encounter the most important book of all time in a classroom setting until they reach college.
The rest of the list isn't too bad, either.
