Because The Sopranos is all about Bling, Bang and Books!

9. The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson

The subtitle of the book is "Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America." Nothing like a gory true crime fiction before a good night sleep for Jim Witowski.

15. Lord of the Flies by William Golding

Reaction from a mother who found out that her son has plagiarized the English essay. AJ found it easier to copy from Cliff Notes only if the assignment was on Lord of the Rings.

17. Existentialists Alert!

Remember the first time you read Camus? Soon you move to Sartre, Nietzsche, Husserl and Kierkegaard. This scene mentions all these philosophers and shows AJ's early existential dilemma.

18. Remembrance Of Things Past by Marcel Proust

HBO / Via

Therapy is all about going back to the beginning so it's obvious that Dr. Melfi would mention Proust's celebrated novel about past and its connection with the present.

19. The Prince by Machiavelli & The Art of War by Sun Tzu

HBO / Via blu-ray .com

Both these books are about manipulation, deceit, strategy and fortune among other things which is enough to hold the interest of mob mogul, Tony Soprano. In his own words, "Sun Tzu's Art of War is much better about strategy."

So go read a book.
